Good air quality is essential for our health, quality of life and the environment. Pollution may have harmful effects, particularly for young children and people with existing respiratory problems.
Councils have to assess air quality in their area against Government air quality objectives. In some cases, levels of pollutants exceed the Government’s objectives and are likely to continue to do so. Councils have to decide how they will deal with air quality management. They also have to decide what measures they will take to improve air quality.
North Lincolnshire Council operate a dedicated air quality website where real time pollution levels and historic data can be viewed.

Detailed Assessment of Nitrogen Dioxide (NO2) at South Killingholme 2015
Our Air Quality Progress Report 2011 identified a possible exceedance of nitrogen dioxide alongside the A160 in South Killingholme. For this reason, in October 2013 North Lincolnshire Council installed an air quality monitoring site to more accurately measure nitrogen dioxide, nitric oxide and nitrogen oxides at this location.
The results of the real-time monitoring presented in the report indicate that air quality objectives for nitrogen dioxide have not been breached.
