We are responsible for monitoring and managing air quality in Harlow.
If air pollution levels exceed the levels set by government, we have to create an Air Quality Management Area and develop an Air Quality Action Plan.
There are currently no Air Quality Management Areas in Harlow.
Under the Clean Air Act of 1993, all of Harlow is covered by a smoke control order.
This means that you can’t emit smoke from a chimney unless you’re burning an authorised fuel or using an exempt appliance.
