Since 2002 North Norfolk District Council (NNDC) has been managing an air quality monitoring programme across a range of urban locations within the district. Throughout this process the council has produced a range of progress reports in accordance with the Air Quality Review and Assessment Process.
Following the publication of the Updating and Screening Assessment (USA, 2012), monitoring has successfully established that none of the national air quality objectives have been exceeded within the North Norfolk District, and as such, there is no justification to establish Air Quality Management Areas at this time.
Local Air Quality Monitoring
Following on from the Updating and Screening Assessment (USA, 2012), monitoring results have shown that air pollution levels have consistently fallen below national objectives and that this current situation is unlikely to change in the near future. In response the Council has decided to review the situation on an annual basis, taking into consideration wider changes within the district and undertaking further analysis as and when required. Further air quality monitoring is proposed on the prelude to the Updating and Screening Assessment in 2016.
