Air quality

Every council has responsibility for measuring the quality of ambient air to ensure that it meets required standards in relation to the concentration of a defined range of pollutants such as lead, nitrogen dioxide, benzene etc.  We are also required to keep a copy of any orders made under the Clean Air Act 1993: Part III s18-22, Sch.1 (plus related Regulations and Orders under the Act).  This information is available from www.uksmokecontrolareas.co.uk.
