Construction projects can trigger a requirement from your local authority to carry out an air quality assessment at the planning stage and/or monitor dust levels during the construction phase.
Dust causes concern when it is deposited in and around homes, schools and other sensitive locations in visible quantities. Construction sites can give rise to annoyance due to the soiling of surfaces by dust and increase long-term, particulate matter (PM10) concentrations. Smaller particles (less than 10 μm) and termed PM10 can travel 1000m or more from the source.
