All councils should think seriously about joining a Link Authority group, says Ian Foulkes, Association of District Councils' assistant secretary (environment and health).

An ADC review of Link Authorities, which were set up as a network to ensure a consistent approach to air pollution control between councils and regulated industries, concluded the network had been a success.

It also made recommendations for improvements to the scheme.

Mr Foulkes said: 'The value of the scheme in terms of consistency of enforcement must not be underestimated and I would urge all local authorities to think very seriously about joining a Link Authority group; some may also feel able to take on the opportunities and challenges inherent in becoming a Link Authority.'
