What do we do?
50 years have passed since the fatal London Smogs, and local authorities have come a long way in improving air quality. This has been achieved through various measures such as the regulation of industry, the introduction of smoke control areas and the tightening of vehicle emissions standards. Under Local Air Quality Management (LAQM), authorities are now working towards achieving objectives for a number of pollutants.
There are several stages involved in the LAQM process;
1. Updating and Screening Assessment of Air Quality
This process is based upon a checklist to identify any significant changes across the authority since the first round of review and assessment of air quality. The first round in North Warwickshire showed that objective levels for nitrogen dioxide may be exceeded in 2005 in a small area close to where the M6 and M42 motorways meet. As a result an Air Quality Management Area was declared and an Action Plan drawn up for the area. The Updating and Screening Assessment and Action Plan can be seen in the documents section of this page. This type of assessments required every 3 years.
2. Detailed Assessment
The Updating and Screening Assessment identified a need for further investigation of benzene levels around Kingsbury Oil Terminal. A Detailed Assessment for this area showed that levels are below the objectives and therefore not considered to be a problem. The detailed report can also be seen in the documents section of this page.
