Local air quality management

Why do we review air quality?

The Air Quality (Scotland) Regulations 2010 provide national air quality objectives for 7 key pollutants. Local Authorities identifying areas where objectives are unlikely to be met, must declare an Air Quality Management Area.

Monitoring, as part of the air quality management process, has identified 2 areas of concern with regard to nitrogen dioxide and particulates. Monitoring continues at:

  • High Street, Irvine 
  • New Street, Dalry.
