Since 1997, local authorities in the UK have been carrying out an ongoing review and assessment of air quality in their area. The aim of the review is to assist local authorities in carrying out their statutory duty to work towards meeting the national air quality objectives. The pollutants evaluated are Carbon monoxide, Benzene, 1,3 Butadiene, Lead, Sulphur Dioxide, Particulate matter (PM10) and Nitrogen dioxide. If a local authority finds any area where the objectives are not likely to be achieved, it must declare it an Air Quality Management Area (AQMA).
Amber Valley Borough Council currently has NO declared Air Quality Management Areas.
The reports produced by the Council are available in the 'Related Documents' section to the right of this webpage.
