About Air Quality

There are several planning guidance documents available that outline when an Air Quality Assessment may be required to support a planning application. As a guide, if any of the following has the potential to impact on air quality, an Air Quality Assessment may be required:

  • Dust emissions during demolition/construction
  • Emissions from plant and HGV movements during demolition/construction
  • Emissions from traffic due to the operation of the proposed development
  • Emissions from de-centralised energy provision (CHP or biomass), or industrial plant, due to the operation of the proposed development
  • Emissions of dust and/or odour due to the operation of the proposed development

If new exposure will be introduced into an area of poor air quality (including areas affected by dust and/or odour), an air quality assessment may be required.

agb Environmental offers a screening option for existing clients. On receipt of the development proposals, our team will advise whether we consider an AQA or other air quality service may be required.
