Residents in the Croy area are invited to comment on plans by the council to remove the need for a local Air Quality Management Area (AQMA).
AQMAs are established at locations where air quality does not meet the legal limits, and the local authority puts in place an action plan to address the issue and regularly monitors any changes in air quality.
In Croy AQMA monitoring has shown the air quality has improved and has consistently met the standards required for over five years. As a result, the AQMA can be revoked, subject to a public consultation.
A report on the revocation and details of the consultation are available online and residents should submit their views by Friday 10 December.
“As a result of the actions taken over a number of years, the air quality in Croy has improved to a level that means we no longer require at Air Quality Management Area to be in place,” said Councillor Michael McPake, Convener of the Environment and Transportation Committee.
“However, it is important that we hear from the people who live and work in the area before we take the decision. If the AQMA is removed, the council will continue to monitor the air quality to ensure it continues to meet the required standards.”
