Dear D Jones

Request for Information - Environmental Information Regulations Case ID
202001466

Thank you for your request for information received on 07 March 2021, in
which you asked for the following information:

Could you please provide any results for Air Quality monitoring (in
particular, nitrogen dioxide (NO2) and fine particulates (PM10)) for the
village of Staverton, Wiltshire.

 

If no monitoring is available, could you please describe relevant contacts
or processes by which Wiltshire Council should undertake such monitoring.

 

Under the Environmental Information regulations 2004 (EIR) the Council is
obliged to make environmental information, that it holds, available on
request.

I can confirm that following searches of the environmental information
held the council does not hold the information you requested and therefore
regulation 12(4)(a) EIR applies to your request.

 

We don’t have any air quality monitoring in Staverton at present.
Monitoring locations are reviewed annually in October/ November for the
following year. If you want us to consider a location, please email us
with the details and why you feel the location requires monitoring.
Monitoring Data for all sites in Wiltshire where monitoring has been
carried out is publicly available at [1]www.Wiltshireairquality.org.uk

Contact email: [2][email address]

Please bear in mind that a heavily trafficked or congested road does not
necessarily mean pollutant levels will be in excess of legislative
requirements. A busy road that is open and has good dispersal of
pollutants will likely be well below the air quality objectives. There are
8 locations in Wiltshire where we have observed pollutant levels in excess
of UK objectives for air quality and these are generally heavily
trafficked or congested, are in canyon like streets (the height of the
building is greater than the width of the road), and they are on an
incline so engines are under “load”.

If you are dissatisfied with the response to your request you can ask for
a review of the handling of your request for information. Details of the
complaints procedure are below.
