Air pollution can have significant effects on health and the environment. Like all other local authorities, we are required to assess and work towards improving air quality in Hull to meet strict health-based objectives set by the government.
We have worked hard over the years to clean the air, and because of this action and other national measures to reduce air pollution, air quality has improved dramatically in Hull.
We can respond to air quality enquiries relating to -
- emissions from road traffic
- the Air Quality Management Area (AQMA)
- the Kingston upon Hull City Council Air Quality Strategy
- the Annual Status Reports (ASRs)
- air quality queries associated with planning applications submitted or proposed development
- air quality monitoring undertaken in the city
- the installation of combustion plants
Smoky lorries or buses can be reported to the Driver and Vehicle Standards Agency (DVSA).
Enquiries regarding climate change or the Hull 2030 Carbon Neutral strategy should be directed to the Climate Change Team.
