Black Country Air Quality Supplementary Planning Document (SPD)

The planning process has a significant role to play in helping to better integrate existing land-use and new development to encourage more sustainable development, and to secure future improvements in air quality.

The SPD set outs simplified guidance for dealing with air quality and is aimed at all those involved in the submission and determination of planning applications where air quality needs to be addressed.

Air Quality is not limited to local authority boundaries, rather the associated effects of development can have impacts across wider regional areas. Therefore, to enable a consistent approach to improving air quality across the Black Country, this joint SPD has been developed to cover all four local authority areas.

Dudley Council adopted the Black Country Air Quality SPD on 21st September 2016 and is now in place across the whole of Dudley Borough.
