Air quality

Air Quality Management Areas

In South Lanarkshire we generally have good and improving air quality however there are some localised air pollution hotspots identified in our towns. We have declared air quality management areas in these hotspots.

We are working on an action plan to improve air quality particularly within our air quality management areas and will consult on measures to improve air quality.

Cleaning up our air isn’t easy, and there is a lot of work happening on a European, National and local level to make sure that pollution doesn’t get worse. However, as our roads continue to fill with more and more vehicles, keeping the air clean and preventing air pollution becomes ever more challenging. We can all do our bit to help improve air quality.
