Air Quality Strategy for Otago

Ten years ago, the Otago Regional Council developed a plan to manage air quality in Otago. Despite a significant reduction in emissions, the national standards for air quality have not been achieved. This strategy revisits ORC’s approach to ensure that, in time, air quality issues are resolved and air is safe to breathe for everyone, and at any time in Otago

We have developed the air quality strategy to:

  • Set out the outcomes we want to achieve for Otago
  • Ensure that, through our work programme, ORC has a coherent approach to achieve these outcomes

We want your feedback

We invite you to have your say on our air quality strategy. Head to our feedback section below.
