Air Quality Management Area Review

Sustained improvements in local air quality have been achieved in some areas of the borough and maintained over a 5-year period (excluding years with pandemic related travel restrictions). Defra guidance requires the coverage of the Air Quality Management Area, (AQMA), to be reviewed. Currently the AQMA is borough wide, but air quality monitoring data shows that there is not borough wide exceedance of the statutory air quality objectives for nitrogen dioxide air pollution. A report will be brought before the Environment & Sustainability Committee specifying the options for a revised AQMA.
