Our consultants provide you with the required information to mitigate planning objections, including scoping reports, screening assessments or detailed air quality impact assessments presented as either a standalone report or a technical chapter within a wider submission document, to help you achieve planning permission.
Why are Air Quality Assessments needed?
Air Quality Assessments (AQA) are increasingly requested in support of planning applications and are often a requirement to discharge planning conditions. The consideration for the suitability of the proposed site use or an assessment of whether a development will cause air quality impacts at sensitive locations, are high on the agenda of Local Authorities. Now specifically referenced within the National Planning Policy Framework, air quality issues are a material consideration for planning approvals and often lead to the refusal of consent for new developments.
