Cheshire East Council is currently undertaking a public engagement exercise with residents and businesses about the declaration of six new air quality management areas (AQMA's), of which four are in Macclesfield.

Details of all the areas, together with an online survey can be found on the Local Air Quality Consultation page.

The Council welcome views from anybody, whether you live in one of the new areas or not. If you require any assistance with the survey please do not hesitate to contact the Air Quality Team using the details below.

Nitrogen dioxide is monitored at more than 100 sites across Cheshire East to identify any that exceed or are close to exceeding the national limit of 40 micrograms per cubic metre of air (µg/m3).

Traffic is the main contributor of nitrogen dioxide to air pollution. The four air quality management areas in Macclesfield are all in areas where housing is close to busy roads.

The highest recorded levels in Macclesfield were in Broken Cross where the annual average monitoring results were 50.68 µg/m3 in 2014 and 45.37 µg/m3 in 2015. The defined AQMA area is around the Broken Cross Roundabout including small stretches of Chester Road, Gawsworth Road and Fallibroome Road.
