Air Quality Management Areas

We have identified areas where air quality did not meet the legal limits. Because of this some areas have been declared Air Quality Management Areas (AQMA).

The AQMAs are:

  • Motherwell Town Centre
  • Chapelhall (Lauchope St/Main St)
  • Coatbridge (Whifflet, Shawhead, Kirkshaws)

Once AQMAs have been declared we have to prepare an Air Quality Action Plan. This contains a range of measures we pledge to take to improve air quality.

You can download a copy of our Air Quality Action Plan below.

Revocation of Croy Air Quality Management Area (AQMA)

In recent years we have noted that air monitoring at the Croy air station is within legal limits.

As such, under the direction of the Scottish Government and Scottish Environment Protection Agency (SEPA) the Croy Air Quality Management Area has been revoked, effective from 18th July 2022.

We are, however, continuing to monitor air pollution in the area.
