Planning - Residential
Air Quality Assessment for the Milbank Residential Development, Project Director, Berkeley, London
Ana's team was commissioned to assess the potential impacts of the proposed development on local air quality using complex air dispersion modelling. The EHO raised a concern as the application site was located in an Air Quality Management Area and new residents would be exposed to pollutant concentrations exceeding current legislated national objectives and European limit values. The results of the assessment identified that there was a risk of exceeding the annual air quality standard for nitrogen dioxide at all locations within the development site due to both traffic and Energy Centre emissions. Ana provided advice on the most suitable height and location of the Combined Heat and Power unit (CHP) to minimise impacts and identified suitable mitigation measures which led to agreement with the EHO being successfully secured.
