Local Air Quality Management
Local Authorities must carry out regular reviews and assessments of air quality in their area against standards and objectives in the National Air Quality Strategy.
Where these standards and objectives are unlikely to be met authorities must:
- designate air quality management areas (AQMAs); and
- prepare and implement remedial action plans.
The aim of such reviews is to make sure that national air quality air standards are met and the potential risk of health effects from air pollutants is as low as possible.
A detailed monitoring infrastructure is present throughout Wales to enable valid assessments to take place, which is operated and maintained by Local Authorities.
Several Local Authorities have declared AQMAs with 2 pollutants being responsible for this (although the levels of others are constantly monitored). These are nitrogen dioxide and particles (dust) under 10 microns (PM10).
Local Authorities have legal duties for local air quality management (LAQM) under the Environment Act 1995. This page contains guidance for Local Authorities on carrying out their LAQM duties.
