Air quality

Air quality reports

Monitoring air pollution across the Borough is an ongoing process. The pollutant of most concern in Calderdale is nitrogen dioxide, mainly associated with road traffic.

Environmental Health publishes a series of reports discussing and assessing these pollutants. Updating and screening assessments consider the situation across Calderdale, highlighting where further investigation may be needed. Detailed Assessments refer to specific investigations, for example of areas identified in updating and screening assessments, and Progress Reports provide annual reviews of the Council's monitoring results.

Where the quality of the air we breathe fails to meet legal standards an Air Quality Management Area may be declared. This leads to a Further Assessment considering the pollution at this specific location and then the creation of an Action Plan aimed at reducing the levels of pollution.

Previous reports can be inspected at the Council's Offices during office hours by prior arrangement. Please contact Environmental Health if you would like to view the previous reports.
