More Air Quality

Commercial, Industrial and Residential Developments all need to consider Air Quality within their Planning Applications.

It is now commonly recognised there is a link between poor Air Quality and reduced mental and physical health including premature death. The UK government now requires most new developers to include some form of Air Quality Assessment as part of their planning application.

Our services include:

  • Air Quality Assessment: An assessment covering, the analysis of existing conditions at the site, the potential for future site users to be exposed to harmful pollutants, and the impacts the site could have on the local area.

  • Air Quality Monitoring: Air Quality monitoring can be utilised anywhere across the UK to provide accurate readings of Air Quality at your desired location. 

  • Air Quality Neutral (AQN): Policy SI 1 of the London Plan requires new developments to be Air Quality Neutral.

  • Air Quality Positive (AQP): Large-scale development sites within London are required maximise benefits to local air quality and minimising exposure for future site users to become Air Quality Positive.

  • Dispersion modelling: Using computer software, pollutant emissions from vehicles and combustion plants (CHP's, Boilers, Generators) can all be modelled to determine the extent of any potential impacts.
