The Government issued its National Planning Guidance in March 2014. This includes advice on the assessment of air quality as well as dust from mineral sites; but as with all its guidance it lacks detail. Following the success of the IAQM guidance on the assessment of dust from demolition and construction, IAQM is investigating the need for similar guidance for mineral and waste management activities. The aim of this meeting is to discuss how dust impacts on amenity and ambient concentrations of particulate matter, and how these impacts should be assessed for planning applications.
