As part of our commitments under the Air Quality Action Plan we monitor air pollution in the borough. We do this using an extensive, state-of-the-art monitoring network. This is made up of 26 nitrogen dioxide diffusion tubes. They produce monthly average concentration readings for this pollutant. Additionally, we have four continuous automatic monitoring stations. These stations track a variety of pollutants and produce live data.
Data and reports
- you can find historical data and analysis in our annual reports
- we publish live and historic data from our monitoring stations on the LondonAir website.
- review our monthly diffusion tube results on this spreadsheet
- This data is not bias adjusted until after the end of the calendar year. Un-bias adjusted data is likely to significantly overestimate pollution levels.
The Breathe London project also carries out continuous monitoring in the borough. This project is funded by the Greater London Authority.
