Local Air Quality Management

Local authorities have a key role to play in improving air quality. They have been tasked with implementing the requirements of the UK Air Quality Strategy at a local level so that the country as a whole can meet the objectives set in the latest European Air Quality Directives. Under this system Hillingdon is working towards achieving the objectives laid down in the UK Air Quality Strategy for seven of the pollutants, namely nitrogen dioxide, particulate matter (PM10), 1,3-butadiene, benzene, sulphur dioxide, carbon monoxide and lead. Ozone is not included due to the transboundary nature of this pollutant.

There are three main stages to the LAQM process:
