AQMA Receptors

AQMA Receptors
Alternative Title

Air Quality Management Area Receptors
Dataset Language

This dataset marks locations of receptors in areas known to have poorer air quality. Modelling was commissioned by Hertfordshire County Council and delivered in 2023. The model provided pollutant concentration for 2014, 2030 and 2036 for each pollutant modelled (NO2, PM10 and PM2.5). The base year 2014 was taken as this is the base year for the county's transport model at the time of delivery. Future years 2030 was promoted due to County Councul strategy referencing this year (Sustainable Hertfordshire Strategy)
