Air quality management

Local authorities are required  to review air quality to assess whether defined air quality standards and objectives are being achieved. Local authorities are also required to publish their findings.  Areas where standards fall short must be identified and Air Quality Management Areas declared in order to secure subsequent compliance with standards.

The information from the diffusion tubes is used in Local Plans, Transport Plans and the improvement of Public Health for Blackpool.
