The main source of pollution in Aylesbury Vale is vehicle emissions. Although there are no major industrial polluting processes in the area there are a number of smaller processes which may potentially produce emissions.
We authorise many of these under the Environmental Protection Act (1990) (details of which can be found on the Pollution Prevention and Control pages) leading to their emissions being minimised. Outside the Vale, major sites like Didcot power station are few, and because of the distances involved, do not significantly influence our air quality.
