Bodmin Air Quality

Monitoring of air quality in Bodmin has been undertaken over a number of years.  The main areas of concern have been identified as Dennison Road, Turf Street, Higher Bore Street and St Leonards. Exceedences are for the annual mean objective for nitrogen dioxide. The biggest source of nitrogen dioxide is the exhaust gases from cars and lorries, and is the air pollutant that Councils most commonly monitor.

The Council legally declared an Air Quality Management Area (AQMA) in 2008.  The AQMA covers the Bodmin regeneration area and therefore encompasses the wider town centre area.

Since declaring the AQMA we have been working with our partners to identify ways we could improve air quality.  We have drawn up an Air Quality Action Plan and have recently reviewed this. Further information is available as part of the Clean Air for Cornwall Strategy.
