What would happen if we did nothing about air quality?

We have assessed a baseline option, which considers the scenario where there is no action taken by BCC on air quality. All options or measures are then considered against this baseline case. Under this baseline case, compliance with legal limits is not expected to be reached across Bristol until 2025. This would mean BCC and the UK Government would be in breach of the legal limits for another 7 years, during which time the negative impacts on public health would not reduce sufficiently.
