6.1.1 Issue

Ambient air quality in the Region is perceived to be high. However, in some parts of the Region, air quality is degraded by individual site sources and/or by cumulative discharges from diffuse sources.

The discharges may be composed of odour, particulate matter, combustion products and/or hazardous air pollutants. These discharges change the characteristics of air quality and may:

  1. adversely affect human health
  2. adversely affect the health of flora and fauna
  3. adversely affect amenity values
  4. cause accelerated corrosion
  5. adversely affect the relationship tangata whenua as Kaitiaki have with their taonga, such as air, ancestral lands, water and waahi tapu.
