Contact Details: Air Quality



Through the Environmental Health Department, the Council has a legal duty to provide a range of services for the protection and benefit of people who live in, work in and visit the district. This involves giving advice about and the enforcement of statutory functions, including reducing all forms of domestic and industrial pollution. Our 2015-2020 Air Quality Action Plan can be downloaded below.

Three Rivers District Council Air Quality Action Plan 2015-2020 (pdf)

Since the first publication of this Action Plan as a consultation draft form in March 2015, on 12 September 2015 the Government completed a consultation process upon further local, regional and national plans to improve air quality. 

The plans affecting Three Rivers Council are for certain parts of the district comprise the Greater London Urban Agglomeration Area, and for certain parts of the district comprise the Eastern Area.

The consultation is being carried out by Defra, following legal action in the Supreme Court brought by the NGO ClientEarth. It ends at midnight on 6 November 2015 and Three Rivers Council will be responding.

The AirTEXT initiative for Three Rivers is being developed and will go live this Autumn. Two monitors to measure nitrogen dioxide and fine particles have been ordered; one will be located in Chorleywood, near the M25 junction, the other on the Uxbridge Road in Mill End.

The Hertfordshire and Bedfordshire Air Pollution Monitoring Network provides up-to-date local air pollution information.
