Air quality monitoring data

We monitor nitrogen dioxide (NO2) concentrations in the air at a number of locations within the Suffolk Coastal and Waveney districts.

Continuous monitoring

There is a continuous analyser located in Woodbridge at the junction of Lime Kiln Quay Road, Thoroughfare and St John’s Street within the declared Air Quality Management Area.

Diffusion Tube monitoring

There are a large number of long-term diffusion tube monitoring locations covering 15 areas within the district: Beccles, Bungay, Farnham, Felixstowe, Kesgrave, Leiston, Little Glemham, Lowestoft, Martlesham, Melton, Oulton Broad, Woodbridge, Saxmundham, Stratford St. Andrew and the Trimleys & Walton.  Additional sites in other areas of the district are often run for a 1 year period to provide air quality information.

Further details of the monitoring locations together with historic results can be viewed in the relevant air quality report.
