Air Quality Strategy for Jersey

Produced by the Health and Community Services
Authored by AEA Technology and published on 01 Apr 2003
Prepared internally, no external cost


​In 1999 the Planning and Environment’s Monitoring Group formed an Air Quality sub group to produce an Air Quality Strategy for Jersey. This group consisted of representatives from the Environmental Services Unit of the Planning Department, Environmental Health (now Health Protection) and the Public Services Department. The Strategy was to address the following objectives:

  1. to provide an inventory of significant sources of local pollution and pollutants

  2. to determine appropriate standards to be complied with

  3. to identify those areas where the standards are exceeded

  4. to establish appropriate action plans for improvement, with clear accountabilities for delivery

  5. to design a monitoring programme capable of assessing the efficiency of the above action plans

  6. to provide an estimate of the costs implementing the monitoring programme

  7. to raise public awareness of air quality in Jersey

The strategy was produced with the assistance of the UK consultants AEA Technology. The strategy is to be submitted to the Environment and Public Services Committee for their endorsement. It is anticipated a steering group chaired by Health Protection will be formed to begin implementation of the action plans and raising public awareness. Health Protection are responsible for protecting and improving the public’s health in relation to amongst other things air quality, drinking water and food safety.
