Air Quality Management Areas (AQMA)

Following our work undertaken in local air quality management, we have designated two formal Air Quality Management Areas (AQMA), where specific pollutants exceed Government air quality targets. These are at roadside locations where residents live and the major source of these pollutants is road transport.

The first AQMA to be designated was for Exeter Road and the High Street in Crediton, in September 2004. We have published our Air Quality Action Plan setting out our measures to improve air quality in these areas. The second AQMA was designated for parts of Station Road, Higher Street and Fore Street in Cullompton, in December 2006. We have also produced an Air Quality Action Plan for Cullompton.

For further information about the AQMAs, please download the Crediton or Cullompton Air Quality Management leaflets in the Downloads section.
