  2. Please provide details of any of the following measures that the council has adopted since 2017 or is considering adopting, in relation to any area, in order to tackle climate change and/or reduce air pollution:
    • congestion charging/road charging
    • restrictions on private car usage in certain areas (eg town centres) and/or at certain times, where this is in response to climate change or air pollution
    • restrictions or increased charges for car parking in certain areas (e.g. town centres) and/or at certain times, where this is in response to climate change or air pollution
