Air Quality

We monitor air quality to protect and inform the community

We use diffusion tubes to monitor nitrogen dioxide at multiple locations across the borough.

They are distributed on a monthly basis and returned to a laboratory for analysis.

We are part of the Hertfordshire and Bedfordshire Air Pollution Monitoring Network, you can view our monitoring data.

You can view our Air Quality Staus reports on the Air Quality England website.

Air Pollution Alerts

You can sign up free to an alert service which sends you a text or email when levels of air pollution in your area increase to a moderate level or above. The alerts are sent out before moderate, high, or very high levels of air pollution are forecast.
