Air Quality Testing Leeds – An Air Quality Assessment is often now required by a local authority to accompany a planning application if there could be a potential affect of air quality from a new development or a change of use of an existing property.
This may include any introduction of a new emission or any increase in traffic movement. Planning authorities are increasingly requesting assessments to be undertaken, especially in Air Quality Management Areas (AQMA) across the UK.

Air Quality in Leeds
The city of Leeds has been designated one of the UK cities with the highest levels of air pollution and exceeds air pollution levels in London. This is mainly attributed to traffic pollution with Leeds being a ‘motoway city’ with a vast road network.
Like many other councils, Leeds Council is adopting new policies to tackle the problem by bringing in a Clean Air Zone in 2020 and investing in both public transport and cycle lanes.
Planning Authorities across the country are also considering aspects of air and odour pollution and Air Quality Assessment Reports are often now a pre-requisite when applying for planning approval within urban areas. Providing a detailed Air Quality Assessment can often make the difference of an application being approved or being rejected.
