Meetings with residents on local anti-smog resolutions

eko infografika 00

Executive Board of Lesser Poland adopted draft local anti-smog resolutions for Skawina, Niepołomice, Krzeszowice and the cities of Nowy Targ and Oświęcim. From 7 July, meetings with inhabitants will begin in their areas as part of public consultations.

The Małopolskie Region is taking further steps in the fight against smog as part of the Air Quality Plan (AQP). One of them is the introduction of local anti-smog resolutions at the request of interested municipalities. More and more Małopolska self-governments decide to take bolder steps in the fight for clean air.

What does the local anti-smog resolution introduce?

The most important assumption of the local anti-smog resolutions is the complete abandonment of coal from 2030. From the beginning of 2022 it will also not be possible to install new coal-fired boilers, and a year later the emission requirements for newly installed boilers, fireplaces and heaters using wood and pellets will be tightened. The local resolution still obliges local governments to comply the deadlines for replacing heat sources already set in the anti-smog resolution for Małopolska.
