Adur – Air Quality Reports

Local Authorities are required to assess and report every year to the government on the air quality in their local area. The reports must assess whether the statutory health-based objectives are being met. Where the objectives are not being met a Local Authority has to produce an Air Quality Action Plan to improve local air quality. ​

Air Quality Management Area Declared (2005)

All sites within the Adur DC area comply with the current national objectives for NO2. Two AQMA’s were declared in 2005, at High Street in Shoreham and at Old Shoreham Road (the A270) in Southwick as both sites exceeded the annual average NO2 objective. Following an improvement in air quality at both sites, the council revoked the two AQMAs in December 2023.
