answer text <p>Public Health England (PHE) has developed a programme to support national and local government to reduce the burden of disease attributable to air pollution. This includes awareness raising, developing the evidence base on the health effects of air pollution and interventions aiming to reduce exposure to air pollution and provide wider public health benefits.</p><p> </p><p>PHE undertakes various air quality research projects, working with academic partners, to review the evidence for the health effects of air pollutants. PHE is a partner in two health protection research units (HPRU) funded by the National Institute for Health Research, whose remit includes air pollution research: The Health impact of Environmental Hazards HPRU and the HPRU in Environmental Change and Health. Further information can be found at the following links:</p><p> </p><p><a href="http://hieh.hpru.nihr.ac.uk/" target="_blank">http://hieh.hpru.nihr.ac.uk/</a></p><p> </p><p><a href="http://www.hpru-ech.nihr.ac.uk/" target="_blank">http://www.hpru-ech.nihr.ac.uk/</a></p><p> </p><p>None of the research projects specifically focus on PM0.1 but address air pollution components which are included in this category.</p>

answer text <p>Public Health England (PHE) has not made a specific assessment of the potential effect on public health of the collection and recycling of food waste. However, PHE has been involved in reviewing the current evidence for the potential health effects of bioaerosols resulting from composting facilities, including facilities recycling food waste. This assessment concluded that while there is some suggestive, albeit limited, qualitative evidence linking bioaerosol emissions from composting facilities to possible respiratory effects, further study is needed for confirmation and to explore other health outcomes. The report is available to view at the following link:</p><p><a href="https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/25825807" target="_blank">https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/25825807</a></p><p>The Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs’ Resources and Waste Strategy details the Government’s ambitions for minimising the environmental impacts of waste whilst maximising its value as a resource. The strategy is available to view at the following link:</p><p><a href="https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/resources-and-waste-strategy-for-england" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/resources-and-waste-strategy-for-england</a></p>

answer text <p>Public Health England (PHE) is not a statutory consultee under the planning regime. Local authority planners should consider consulting the Director of Public Health on any planning applications (including at the pre-application stage) that are likely to have a significant impact on the health and wellbeing of the local population or particular groups within it. This guidance can be viewed at the following links:</p><p> </p><p><a href="https://www.gov.uk/guidance/consultation-and-pre-decision-matters#Statutory-consultees-on-applications" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/guidance/consultation-and-pre-decision-matters#Statutory-consultees-on-applications</a></p><p> </p><p><a href="https://www.gov.uk/guidance/health-and-wellbeing#health-organisation-contact" target="_blank">https://www.gov.uk/guidance/health-and-wellbeing#health-organisation-contact</a>.</p><p> </p><p>Where consulted on planning applications, PHE takes the view that emissions from such plants are best considered as part of the associated environmental permit application. PHE is consulted by the Environment Agency and provides an independent opinion on all bespoke environmental permit applications, such as municipal waste incinerators, with regard to public health impacts. These assessments cover a range of emissions to air, water and land, including but not exclusively particulate matter. The role of PHE can be viewed at the following link:</p><p> </p><p><a href="https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/477277/Environmental_permitting_guide_Nov_2015.pdf" target="_blank">https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/477277/Environmental_permitting_guide_Nov_2015.pdf</a></p>
