Defra assesses compliance against EU air quality limit values for 43 regional zones and agglomerations across the UK.

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.
