Public Health - Air Quality

General Information

Air quality is monitored across the Moray area in accordance with the UK National Air Quality Strategy.

Part IV of the Environment Act 1995 requires the local authority to review and assess air quality in its area and to determine whether or not air quality objectives are likely to be achieved.

An updating and screening assessment is carried out every three years and progress reports are prepared to fill in the gaps between the three yearly cycle of review and assessment. 

The Moray Council currently monitors nitrogen dioxide at 17 locations (PDF) (1 page,  11 KB) using passive diffusion tubes.
