Under European law, Local Authorities
have a statutory duty to monitor and improve the air quality within their
jurisdiction through the implementation of Air Quality Management Areas (AQMAs).
Most authorities internationally have now declared AQMAs and require that
Planning Applications for major development schemes are accompanied by an Air
Quality Assessment report.
Uniquely, Hilson Moran
combines a knowledge of building performance and innovative ventilation
technology, with an understanding of the atmospheric sciences and planning
legislation. We can mobilise the latest technology to obtain a sound
understanding of the baseline air quality at the development site.
To assess the air
quality impact of the proposed scheme in future years, we utilise the latest
atmospheric dispersion models such as ADMS to predict the ambient concentrations
of pollutants resulting from both fixed plant and vehicles.
necessary, Hilson Moran can provide advice on low emissions technology and
abatement solutions to overcome planning issues at an early stage in the design
