1.3        Purpose of Report
This report fulfils the requirements of the Local Air Quality Management process as
set out in Part IV of the Environment Act (1995), the Air Quality Strategy for England,
Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland 2007 and the relevant Policy and Technical
Guidance documents. The LAQM process places an obligation on all local authorities
to regularly review and assess air quality in their areas, and to determine whether or
not the air quality objectives are likely to be achieved. Where exceedences are
considered likely, the local authority must then declare an Air Quality Management
Area (AQMA) and prepare an Air Quality Action Plan (AQAP) setting out the
measures it intends to put in place in pursuit of the objectives.


The objective of this Updating and Screening Assessment is to identify any matters
that have changed which may lead to risk of an air quality objective being exceeded.
A checklist approach and screening tools are used to identify significant new sources
or changes and whether there is a need for a Detailed Assessment. The USA report
should provide an update of any outstanding information requested previously in
Review and Assessment reports.

1.4        Air Quality Objectives
The air quality objectives applicable to LAQM in England are set out in the Air
Quality (England) Regulations 2000 (SI 928), The Air Quality (England) (Amendment)
Regulations 2002 (SI 3043), and are shown in Table 1.1. This table shows the
objectives in units of microgrammes per cubic metre g/m3 (milligrammes per cubic
metre, mg/m3 for carbon monoxide) with the number of exceedences in each year
that are permitted (where applicable).

1.5       Summary of Previous Review and Assessments


Please outline the conclusions of previous rounds of R&A.

Regional pollution groups may wish to provide this information in a table. A brief
description for each authority to ensure readers are able to understand the outcomes
of previous reports in relation to each authority would be useful.

To include –
    All stages completed.
    Exceedences identified/predicted.
    Areas affected.
    AQMA’s declared (together with maps) or amended
    Any locations where exceedences of objective concentrations have previously
       been identified but reports have judged that no AQMA is necessary
    AQMAs that have been revoked.
    Any on-going assessments that have not yet been reported

It may be helpful to include a table of previous reports, dates they were produced,
and brief outcomes e.g. “Detailed Assessment Required for NO2”

2          New Monitoring Data
2.1        Summary of Monitoring Undertaken
2.1.1      Automatic Monitoring Sites


Please provide details of automatic monitoring carried out in the year covered by this
report. Table 2.1 below provides the recommended format for a table of site details.
Include in this section
        A map showing the location of your monitoring sites
        Details of any sites that started up, or closed down, since the previous
           report, with reasons.

Descriptions of monitoring site classifications can be found in Table A1.4 of the
Technical Guidance (page A1-20). Regarding whether the site represents worst-case
exposure, there is an FAQ on the Defra LAQM web pages: please see
http://laqm.defra.gov.uk/laqm-faqs/.

Also include in this section or as a separate appendix, details of QA/QC:
        Frequency of routine calibrations and periodic site audits.
        Who carries these out? (LA or contractor).
        Data validation and ratification procedures.
        Monitoring period, if not full calendar year
        Clearly labelled maps of all monitoring locations (monitoring site labels
          should match those in tables where possible)

In the case of PM10 monitoring, provide the equipment type and details of any
adjustments applied to the data, e.g. correction factors applied to BAM data or use of
VCM to correct TEOM data. (You can find out more the VCM model here.)

Regional pollution groups will need to ensure that monitoring sites are still identifiable
to each local authority. Maps should therefore show local authority boundaries.

2.1.2      Non-Automatic Monitoring Sites


Please provide details of non-automatic monitoring. This will most commonly be NO2
diffusion tubes but could also include benzene diffusion tubes

Table 2.2 below provides the recommended format for a table of site details.

Also include in this section or in a separate appendix, details of QA/QC: for diffusion
tubes this should include –
        Lab supplying and analysing the tubes.
        Preparation method used.
        Confirmation that the lab follows the procedures set out in the Practical
           Guidance.
        Results of laboratory precision and WASP scheme (see Para 3.23 in
           TG(09))
        Whether the Local Authority has compared the diffusion tubes with the
           reference method in a co-location study (details of this can be included as
           a sub-section or appendix).
        The bias adjustment factor being applied to the annual means from the
           diffusion tubes.
        Where this came from – i.e. local co-location, LAQM Support website.

The national bias adjustment factors are available at http://laqm.defra.gov.uk/bias-
adjustment-factors/national-bias.html and the questionnaire for adding your own
colocation study to the database is at http://laqm.defra.gov.uk/bias-adjustment-
factors/co-location-data.html.

Local authorities are encouraged to share colocation information with other
authorities. Please complete and return the colocation questionnaire to ensure your
colocations is considered for inclusion in the database of bias adjustment factors
provided by the LAQM Helpdesk.

Information on QA/QC for diffusion tubes can be found on the LAQM website at
http://laqm.defra.gov.uk/diffusion-tubes/diffusion-tubes.html.

Please see FAQs http://laqm.defra.gov.uk/laqm-faqs/ for more information on worst-
case exposure.

Regional pollution groups will need to ensure that monitoring sites are still identifiable
to each local authority. Maps should therefore show local authority boundaries.

2.2        Comparison of Monitoring Results with AQ
           Objectives
This section can be divided by pollutant. Please include a table of key statistics for each
pollutant monitored.

Separate tables should be used for automatic and non-automatic (e.g. diffusion tube)
results.

For each monitoring site the key statistics should include –
       Data capture as a % of the calendar year.
       Data capture as a % of the monitoring period, if monitoring was not carried out
         for the full year. (If monitoring was carried out for less than the full calendar
         year, the monitoring period should be clearly stated.)
       Key statistics, e.g. annual mean.
       All statistics relevant to Air Quality (AQ) objectives, e.g. number of 1-hour
         mean NO2 concentrations >200 µg/m3, annual mean PM10, etc.
       Where the period of valid data is less than 90% of a full year, include relevant
         percentile alternatives (e.g. the 98th percentile of hourly means rather than the
         number of hours >200 µg/m3).

Identify any sites where monitoring was not carried out for a full calendar year. In these
cases, please state -
         What part of the year was it carried out for?
         What was the data capture for the monitoring period?
         What was the data capture for the calendar year ? (e.g. if full data capture
           was achieved, but monitoring was only carried out for six months, the data
           capture for the year would be 50%).

Where monitoring is for 9 months or less, the mean should be “annualised” – i.e.
adjusted using the methodology in Box 3.2 of TG(09) - before being compared to annual
mean objectives. Please make it clear where this has been done, and provide
further details in Appendix A if necessary.

Text should highlight which sites have exceeded the relevant AQ Objective, and which
have not. Mention any cases which are borderline.

If any exceedences are identified, are they within an existing AQMA or not? And do they
represent relevant exposure?

The Local Authority may wish to include any trend data from previous years, showing
any increasing or decreasing trends (5 years data is usually considered the minimum
necessary to identify a significant trend). Any apparent trends in this data should be
discussed.

Pollution groups can summarise the information across the group but any changes in air
quality, for example, new exceedence areas should be identifiable to the relevant local
authority.

2.2.1       Nitrogen Dioxide

Recommended formats for results tables, for both automatic and non-automatic sites
are given below. These should answer the following questions:

           Is the measured annual mean concentration at any site greater than
            40 µg/m3? Exceedences of the 40 µg/m3 annual mean NO2 objective
            should be highlighted in bold.

           Have any sites recorded more than 18 1-hour means above 200 µg/m3,
            or (if the period of valid data is less than 90% of a full year) does the
            99.8th percentile of 1-hour mean concentrations exceed 200 µg/m3?
            Cases where there are more than the permitted 18 exceedences of the
            200 μg/m3 1-hour mean NO2 objective should be highlighted in bold.

Automatic Monitoring:

           Where the period of valid data is less than 90% of a full year, please
            include the 99.8th percentile in brackets after the number of exceedences.

Diffusion Tube Data:

           For diffusion tubes, the annual means should be bias-adjusted, with the
            bias adjustment factors used for each year included e.g. as a footnote.
           Please indicate where a result is the mean of multiple tube exposure (e.g.
            triplicate tubes).
           Please include the full dataset (monthly mean values) as an appendix.
           Exceedences of 60 µg/m3 should be highlighted, as these indicate a risk
            that the 1-hour objective may also be exceeded.
           Where the period of valid data is less than 90% of a full year, this should
            be clearly indicated.

In both cases, discuss whether the monitoring site locations are representative of
relevant public exposure. If an exceedence is measured at a monitoring site which is
not representative of public exposure, please use the procedure specified in Box 2.3
of TG(09) to estimate the concentration at the nearest receptor.

Where possible, previous year’s statistics should be included for comparison,
although this is not a requirement. If you have at least 5 years’ valid data, you may
wish to include a graph to illustrate trends.

Pollution groups can summarise the information across the group but any changes in
air quality, for example, new exceedence areas should be identifiable to the relevant
local authority.

Diffusion Tube Monitoring Data


Table 2.5 below gives a suggested format for reporting a summary of nitrogen
dioxide diffusion tube data. The results should be bias adjusted (as detailed in
section 2.1.2)

Please include the full dataset (monthly mean values) as an appendix.

Annual means in excess of the 40 μg/m3 annual mean NO2 objective should be highlighted
in bold.

The following should also be indicated:
    Results which are based on the mean of multiple tube exposure (e.g. triplicate
       tubes)
    Data capture for valid data less than 90%
    Data capture of less than 9 months (or 75%)
    Results that have been annualised (Box 3.2 of LAQM.TG(09)
    Results that have been distance adjusted for relevant exposure

Details of annualisation and/or distance adjustment should be detailed in this section.

Longer term datasets:
If there are previous years’ data from the diffusion tube survey, these can be reported
as in Table 2.6 below, although this is not a requirement. Additional tables and charts
may also be used to illustrate trends over the last 5 years.

Exceedences of the 40 μg/m3 annual mean NO2 objective should be highlighted in bold.
All results should be bias-adjusted, with the bias adjustment factors used for each
year included

Pollution groups can summarise the information across the group but any changes in
air quality, for example, new exceedence areas should be identifiable to the relevant
local authority.

2.2.2      PM10


For the 2004 objectives:
                                                                 3
        Is the annual mean concentration greater than 40 µg/m , or
                                                                   3
        Are there more than 35, 24-hour exceedences of 50 µg/m , or does the
          90th percentile of 24-hour concentrations exceed 50 µg/m3?

Confirm whether the monitoring site locations are representative of relevant public
exposure.
Results can be presented in a table, as in Table 2.7 and 2.8 below.

Ensure that data have been adjusted to gravimetric equivalent (TEOM data should
be corrected using the VCM here) and are presented as a calendar year mean.
Ensure that details of these calculations are presented in the text or in an appendix.

Exceedences of the 40 μg/m3 annual mean PM10 objective should be highlighted in
bold.

Cases where there are more than the permitted 35 exceedences of the 50 μg/m3 24-hour
mean
PM10 objective should be highlighted in bold.

Where possible, previous years’ statistics should be included for comparison but this
is not a requirement. Where the period of valid data is less than 90% of a full year,
please include the 90th percentile in brackets after the number of exceedence.

Pollution groups can summarise the information across the group but any changes in
air quality, for example, new exceedence areas should be identifiable to the relevant
local authority.

2.2.5      Other pollutants monitored


Add as many sub-sections as required. Delete if no other pollutants are monitored.

If you carry out monitoring for pollutants not covered by the LAQM regulations (for
example ozone, PAH, PM2.5) you may also wish to report it here.

Local authorities may wish to include information on dust deposition, radiation
monitoring, and odour complaints (especially where these are relevant to sources
identified in this report).

Pollution groups can summarise the information across the group but any changes in
air quality, for example, new exceedence areas should be identifiable to the relevant
local authority.

2.2.6     Summary of Compliance with AQS Objectives


The boxes below summarise the Local Authority area’s compliance (or
otherwise) with the AQS Objectives. Regional pollution groups may
summarise across the group, but any significant changes, for example new
exceedence areas, or requirements for new detailed assessments must be
identifiable for each local authority. A table may be preferable (an example is
provided below).

Please select one of the boxes below and complete it. Regional pollution groups
may choose not use these boxes.

3            Road Traffic Sources

This section should deal with any changes in the Local Authority area that may affect
air quality. It is only necessary to consider locations which:
     have not been assessed during the earlier rounds,
     have experienced a significant change in traffic flows
     have a new development, or
     have new exposure that has not been assessed previously.

If an air quality assessment has been carried out as part of an Environmental
Statement or to support a planning application for a new development, please
summarise the outcome and provide a reference to the assessment.

In each case, if there are no such areas, then there is no need to proceed further with
this part.
Please complete the green text box to state this explicitly in the report.

Each of these instruction boxes is a single-cell table, so to delete them, simply
highlight the box, then select Table/Delete/Rows.

Regional pollution groups may prefer to present the information for each source type
within a table (example provided).

8         Conclusions and Proposed Actions


8.1       Conclusions from New Monitoring Data

For example, exceedences identified, within and outside of existing AQMAs. Cases
where exceedence was previously suspected but monitoring has confirmed that the
AQ Objective is met. Significant trends.

Has monitoring identified any potential or actual exceedences at relevant locations
outside existing AQMAs?

Are all monitoring results within AQMAs below the air quality objective, such that it
may be appropriate to revoke the AQMA?

In both of these cases a Detailed Assessment would be required.

Regional pollution groups should ensure that conclusions drawn are identifiable to
the relevant local authority.

Summary of likely impacts of local developments: road transport, other transport,
industrial installations, commercial/domestic, fugitive emissions, residential and
commercial etc.

Has the assessment of new or significantly changed sources identified any potential
exceedences outside existing AQMAs?

Regional pollution groups should ensure that conclusions drawn are identifiable to
the relevant local authority.

8.3         Proposed Actions

Has the Updating and Screening Assessment identified the need to proceed to a
Detailed Assessment for any pollutant? If so, which pollutant(s) and objectives, and
where?

If not, state explicitly that this is the case.

Has the Updating and Screening Assessment identified any need for additional
monitoring, or changes to the existing monitoring programme (e.g. re-location of
sites)?

Are changes required to any existing AQMAs – for example should their boundaries
be changed or can they be revoked? If so it will be necessary to proceed to a
Detailed Assessment.

What is your next course of action?
       Submit 2013 Progress Report
       and (if necessary) progress to 2012 Detailed Assessment (for which
          locations, pollutants and objectives)

Regional pollution groups should state where actions are identifiable to the relevant
local authority and where they are identifiable to the regional group.
