We are responsible for monitoring and managing air quality in Chelmsford.
We regularly test the levels of pollution in the air, and produce Annual Status Reports of our findings. We submit these to Defra for their approval.
There are two Air Quality Management Areas (AQMA) in Chelmsford.
One is in place at the Army and Navy Roundabout and surrounding roads. There is an Air Quality Action Plan for this location.
The second AQMA is along a small section of Maldon Road in Danbury. We are currently developing an Air Quality Action Plan for this location.
