Air quality

We have been monitoring air quality in the district since 1998. Our air quality is generally good. Like over 230 other councils across the UK we have, however, found that levels of some pollutants are above guidelines set by the Government in some areas.

We are committed to working to improve air quality in our district where levels of air pollutants are exceeding air quality objectives.  In 2013 the council designated Grantham Town Centre (from Brook Street to Bridge End Road including the High Street, London Road, Wharf Road and part of Barrowby Road) an Air Quality Management Area.
