Development (Planning) Air Quality Assessments

New developments can negatively impact local air quality, and/or introduce sensitive receptors to areas where air quality is a concern. Air quality must be considered as a material consideration when determining planning applications, and therefore requires early action in any project to avoid potential delays.

Using the most appropriate dispersion modelling software (e.g. ADMS-Roads) and following current guidance, we can:

  • determine the baseline air quality in the area of the development;
  • qualitatively assess the impact of any construction activities;
  • predict the impact on local air quality from the proposed development;
  • predict the impact on any new receptors introduced by the proposed development, and
  • advise on suitable mitigation strategies, where necessary, to include preparation of dust management plans.

We undertake air quality assessments for a wide variety of developments, and have a proven track record of helping our clients achieve planning consent in a cost-effective manner.

Early consultation can help avoid costly delays in the later stages of a development.
