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)
  • Croy

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.

Consultation on the 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.

We are therefore proposing to revoke the Croy Air Quality Management Area. We would, however, still continue to monitor in the area.

As part of the revocation process, we have prepared a report which can be accessed above. If you would like comment on the proposed revocation, please email

The consultation will close on Friday 10 December 2021.
