National Air Quality

The Environment Act 1995 placed a requirement on the UK Government to prepare an Air Quality Strategy for England, Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland.

Within the Air Quality Strategy, National Air Quality Objectives are set out. These are based upon EU Limit Values.

Local councils are required to review and assess air quality against these objectives. If monitoring suggests that pollutant levels are of concern, Local Authorities have a duty to initiate remedial action and this is in the form of declaring an Air Quality Management Area (AQMA) and prepare an Action Plan to improve air quality.

Sedgemoor does not currently have any AQMA's.

Further information on air quality at a national level can be downloaded from the DEFRA UK-AIR website. This includes a prediction of air quality over the next 24 hours.
