Notes:​

  1. *Data has been accessed from the most recent local authority Air Quality Annual Status Reports (ASRs) submitted to Government. The results are all bias corrected, and distance-adjusted where appropriate. In some cases, this data is provisional and awaiting approval from DEFRA.

    • Air Quality Annual Status Reports (ASRs) are compiled using the previous year’s data. This means that in most cases the most up to date air quality data was collected in 2018, but where a local authority has submitted its ASR using 2019 data this has been reflected in the audit.

    • Annual data for 2020 will be released in 2021.

  2. In order to meet the Annual Air Quality Objective, set under the Local Air Quality Management (LAQM) regime, a site must have an annual average Nitrogen Dioxide (NO2) level below 40ug/m3, which is set at the same level as the Legal Limit Value the government must meet.

  3. This data audit follows ONS data released in June (https://www.gov.uk/government/statistics/uk-local-authority-and-regional-carbon-dioxide-emissions-national-statistics-2005-to-2018) which showed that transport as a sector is failing to make big enough reductions in carbon dioxide emissions to fight the climate crisis

  4. See https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/air-quality-plan-for-nitrogen-dioxide-no2-in-uk-2017 for more information on sources of NO2 pollution and http://www.londonair.org.uk/LondonAir/guide/WhatIsNO2.aspxfor more information on the health risks of NO2 pollution
