Decision details

Rumbolds Hill, Midhurst Air Quality Management Area Public Consultation

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: No

Is subject to call in?: Yes


Air quality monitoring data recorded at Rumbold’s Hill, Midhurst since July 2015 indicates that the air quality there breaches the UK air quality objective for nitrogen dioxide (expressed as an annual mean concentration). CDC is therefore obliged to declare the affected area by Order an ‘Air Quality Management Area’. The declaration process requires CDC to undertake a public consultation on this matter and to report back on the consultation to Cabinet prior to declaring an AQMA.
That Cabinet resolves to:
Approve a 1 month public consultation on a proposed Air Quality Management Area declaration at Rumbold’s Hill, Midhurst and to subsequently report back to Cabinet.




1.     That Cabinet approves in principle the proposed Air Quality Management Area, as illustrated in Appendix 1, in line with the Council’s statutory Local Air Quality Management duties.

2.     That Cabinet authorises commencement of a public consultation exercise regarding the proposed Air Quality Management Area.
