Air Quality Management in Oxford

Air Quality Management Area

The Council previously declared AQMA's in central Oxford (2003) and at Green Road roundabout (2005) Oxford where it is probable that the annual mean nitrogen dioxide objective will not be met. Following further detailed assessments in 2008 and 2009 several additional areas were identified where the annual mean nitrogen dioxide objective will not be met.

In September 2010 the City Council made an Air Quality Management Order declaring the whole of the city as an AQMA, to include the 7 localised hotspots where pollution levels of nitrogen dioxide have exceeded national objectives.
