Our strategy

The Commercial Team of Environmental Health operates our air quality monitoring station which monitors for fine particles and nitrogen dioxide. A monitoring programme for nitrogen dioxide is also carried out at 17 sites across the borough.

In May 1997 the Government produced the National Air Quality Strategy (NAQS). The strategy represents a comprehensive approach to maintaining and improving the quality of ambient air in the United Kingdom.

Outlined in the strategy are the air quality objectives for the eight pollutants the Government feels are of most concern at present and the dates it feels these targets should be met. 

We have developed an Air Quality Strategy and under Part IV of the Environment Act 1995, we have a duty to review air quality in Stevenage.
