Defra assesses compliance against EU air quality limit values for 43 regional zones and agglomerations across the UK. The compliance assessment is contained in the annual compliance reports which are accessible on the UK-AIR website: We do not hold compliance data at local authority level.

Air quality data from Defra’s national monitoring network is routinely published on the UK-AIR website and can be searched by location. In addition, many local authorities monitor air quality at local level and make this data available.
