This report concludes  that NO2 concentrations measured by Moray Council during 2008 were below the National Air Quality Strategy annual mean objective for NO2 at all monitoring locations.  However, NO2 concentrations at West Park Court, Elgin were close to the objective in 2008.  As a result, additional monitoring of NO2 is to take place in Elgin and to consider air quality impacts of new developments of traffic management proposals for the area.
