Air quality reports
What can you recycle in your green box?
Developing on brownfield sites (previously used land) is a key priority of the government’s regeneration policy.
Where can I find the register?
The quality of the air we breathe is affected by many factors.
Information on air quality is provided using an index produced by the Department for the Environment, Food and Rural Affairs.
The Pollution Control Section currently manages six closed sites and landfill gas is actively controlled at three of these.
Under the provisions of the Environmental Permitting (England & Wales) Regulations 2010 and the Environment Act 1995 the council's pollution section covers a wide range of activities.
Causes of contamination
The Pollution Control team is responsible for the regulation of emissions to atmosphere from most of the industrial and commercial processes within the borough.
