Air quality management

How do we manage air quality?

We have a duty to improve air quality in areas where air quality targets have been missed.

We have found four areas where air quality needs to be improved, by reducing concentrations of nitrogen dioxide; these have been formally designated as air quality management areas. These areas are:

  • Little Madeley

  • Newcastle-under-Lyme town centre

  • Kidsgrove town centre

  • May Bank, Wolstanton and Porthill
