Air quality is a priority for Chorley Council as it is an important factor in preserving and improving health and wellbeing and reducing harm to health and the environment. As a council we are delivering a range of environmental and biodiversity-enhancing measures to promote clean air, reduce carbon emissions and enable more sustainable ways of travel.

Our approach to air quality is outlined in our Clean Air Strategy.

We are trialling a network of automatic Air Quality Monitors across the borough, these measure Nitrogen Dioxide and Particulate Matter. In a joint project with South Ribble Borough Council we are making the data more accessible. As this is a new project, comments are welcome on how useful you find this and how we can improve the accessibility.
