The Council has a legal duty to monitor air quality as this can have an impact on health and the environment.
We are a member of the Essex Air Quality Consortium which consists of all Local Authorities in Essex, Essex County Council, the Environment Agency, London Stansted Airport and the University of Essex. The group meets regularly to provide assistance and share experience and best practice to carry out their duties to promote improvements in air quality related issues.
We report on the assessment of air quality in the area and the measurement data is held on the Essex Air Consortium website at Essex Air - Maldon. General information is available at Essex Air and you can also view our current annual status report.
