Local Air Quality Management

Martin Environmental Solutions offer Local Air Quality Management (LAQM) services to Local Government.

Local Government

The LAQM Review and Assessment process requires local authorities to review local air quality and assess whether health-based air quality objectives will be achieved. If it is predicted that these will not be achieved an Air Quality Management Area (AQMA) must be designated and an Air Quality Action Plan (AQAP) put in place to improve air quality to acceptable levels.

This process is one of the most demanding disciplines on local authority environmental health departments in terms of the technical expertise required to write the mandatory review and assessment reports.

With detailed knowledge and experience of writing both Update and Screening Reports and Progress Reports, including having reports identified by DEFRA assessors as examples of good practice, we can assist local authorities in meeting their annual reporting requirements.

We have extensive experience of undertaking Detailed Assessments, declaring Air Quality Management Areas and Further Assessment report writing.

In addition we can help with the development of action plans to fulfil your legal requirements in working towards the national health-based air quality objectives.

Our services include:

  • Writing Updating and Screening Reports
  • Writing Progress Reports
  • Carrying out Detailed Assessments where it appears the national objectives are likely to be exceeded
  • Writing Further Assessment reports
  • Formation of reports and presentations to Council officials
  • Liaising with interested parties and community groups to develop Action Plans
