Air Quality - Nottingham City JSNA (2015)

  • Report
  • published by Nottingham City Council on 15/07/2015
Description

Despite great improvements in air quality in the UK since the Clean Air Act of 1956, current background levels of air pollution still pose a significant risk to health. Long term exposure to air pollution at the levels experienced in many urban centres in the UK is now known to cause respiratory and cardiovascular disease and lung cancer. Short term exposure to episodes of elevated air pollution also leads to a worsening of symptoms for those with existing asthma, respiratory or cardiovascular disease, and can trigger acute events such as heart attacks in vulnerable individuals

Air Quality Directive 2008/50/EC

  • Report
  • published by Other on 21/05/2008
Description

This Directive seeks to establish a common approach to the assessment of ambient air quality and the implementation of the necessary measures to reduce emissions at source in order to maintain or improve ambient air quality. Objectives: Protect human health and the environment as a whole. Combat emissions of pollutants at source and identify and implement the most effective emission reduction measures at all levels. Air quality status should be maintained where it is already good, or improved. Minimise the risk posed by air pollution to vegetation and natural ecosystems away from urban areas. Although there is no identifiable threshold below which PM2,5 would not pose a risk, there should be a general reduction of concentrations of fine particulate matter (PM2,5).

Air Quality Updating and Screening Assessment 2006 - Broxtowe Borough Council

  • Report
  • published by Other on 18/04/2012
Description

Review and assessment is undertaken using a phased approach, initially conducting an 'Updating and Screening Assessment' principally based on a checklist to identify those matters that have changed since the previous round of review and assessment was completed and which now require further assessment. Following this a 'Detailed Assessment' is undertaken if the Updating and Screening Assessment indicates that an air quality objective may be compromised. A review of local ambient air quality between 2003-06 has demonstrated that the air quality objectives for benzene, 1,3-butadiene, carbon monoxide, lead, PM10 and sulphur dioxide will be met within the district. The Council declared 4 AQMAs within the borough due to an exceedence of the annual mean objective for nitrogen dioxide and whilst it is anticipated that this will fall below the national objective prior to 2010, there is not adequate information to necessitate a detailed assessment with a view to revoking the AQMAs at this moment in time. At its meeting on 21 December 2010, Cabinet resolved that AQMA status be withdrawn from areas 2 and 3 and that the proposals for areas 1 and 4 be supported.

LAQM Areas 2010 Further Assessment Report (January 2012)

  • Report
  • published by Nottingham City Council on 01/01/2012
Description

Under Section 84 (1) of the Environment Act 1995 where a Local Authority has designated or amended an Air Quality Management Area (AQMA) they are required to undertake a further assessment of existing and likely future air quality in an AQMA. There is also a requirement to consult on the further assessment and make it available to the public. Nottingham City Council¿s 2 Air Quality Management Areas originally declared in 2002 were varied and the legal Orders for the amendments sealed in June 2010. The AQMAs are concerned with exceedences of the annual mean nitrogen dioxide Air Quality Objective (AQO). The Further Assessment (FA) report has considered 2009 and 2010 nitrogen dioxide monitoring data, current/ proposed planning applications and possible new developments associated with the local plan and; has shown that road traffic is the predominant local source that contributes to exceedences of the annual mean Air Quality Objective.
