traffic in Walsall

Walsall Council has been monitoring air quality for a number of decades. In 1995 the Environment Act was introduced which required all Local Authorities to undertake regular assessments of air quality and work towards meeting the national air quality objectives. Where the objectives are not likely to be achieved, Local Authorities must declare an Air Quality Management Area there.

Pollution Control’s Scientific Team oversees the monitoring and assessment of air quality in the Walsall area. Further information on Walsall Council’s air quality can be obtained by following the links below:.
