The council monitors designated air pollution sites throughout the borough to measure sulphur dioxide, nitrogen dioxide and smoke levels.  The nitrogen dioxide results are included as part of the National Nitrogen dioxide survey, which is co-ordinated by AEA Technology.

Environmental Health, along with the Alkali and Clean Air Inspectorate, authorise and control the emissions of air pollutants from certain industrial premises within the borough.
