Air Quality Monitoring
The Council undertakes air quality monitoring in order to track changes over time, to contribute to national data and to prioritise interventions where they are most needed. We do this through an air quality monitoring station, currently located on the A5190 Cannock Road in Heath Hayes, and diffusion tubes that are located across the District. Site details and summary of monitoring data can be viewed here.
Air Quality Management Areas
The Council has declared three Air Quality Management Areas within the District. This is because levels of nitrogen dioxide (NO2) in those areas exceed the national air quality objectives, mainly due to road traffic on the A5 Watling Street and A5190 Cannock Road. Maps of the three Air Quality Management Areas can be found here, and more general information is available here.
