Advancements in the scientific understanding in the associated health implications of air pollution, coupled with raised public awareness and media coverage has brought this ever evolving public and environmental health issue into the forefront of society’s agenda, within the UK. The purpose of this study is to evaluate the impact the current Local Air Quality Management framework has had at reducing air pollution. The research project was designed in two phases: The initial structured literature search and review appraised the current body of knowledge in this area, developed an understanding of the known successes and shortfalls of Local Air Quality Management and highlighted areas were further understanding was required. The second phases built upon the established comprehension of Local Air Quality Management by apprising generalised theories against a local authority’s implementation, highlighting unseen influential factors and providing a quantitative analysis of empirical data to evaluate the impact this management system has had upon air pollution.
