Local Air Quality Management

The Council are required to assess air quality within their area for a number of key pollutants (designated by the National Air Quality Strategy).

If any of these 'key' pollutants are likely to, or already exceed, any of the national targets in any areas of our district we are required to declare an Air Quality Management Area (AQMA) for that location.
