Local authorities in the UK are required to carry out reviews and assessments their area’s air quality. This involves measuring air pollution and using data to predict how it will change over the next few years. These reviews help make sure that the national air quality objectives will be achieved throughout the UK by the relevant deadlines. These objectives have been put in place to protect people's health and the environment.
If a local authority finds an area where the objectives are not likely to be achieved, it must declare an Air Quality Management Area there. This could be localised to a single street or cover a whole town, depending on how people and pollution are distributed. An Air Quality Action Plan will be produced to lay out how the air quality will be improved.
Many of the assessments and action plans produced by the local authorities which are members of the Kent and Medway Air Quality Network can be found in the KentAir Reports Library. More information about AQMAs can be found at the UKAIR website.
