Medway Council currently has four Air Quality Management Areas which are above the annual objective for nitrogen dioxide (a pollutant present in vehicle exhaust emissions).
The air quality management areas are:
- Central Medway
- Pier Road, Gillingham
- High Street, Rainham
- Medway Four Elms Hill
Reducing road transport emissions within the Air Quality Management Areas and the wider area is a key air quality priority to help towards achieving their air quality objectives.
Tackling the Central Medway, Pier Road (Gillingham) and Rainham High Street Air Quality Management Areas falls under the current Air Quality Action Plan. This was approved by cabinet in December 2015.
