Former Titan Works, Claremont Road, Halifax

Client – Residential Developer

Scope – An air quality assessment meeting the requirements of the Air Quality & Emissions Technical Planning Guidance (TPG) – Part of the West Yorkshire Low Emissions Strategy, for the proposed redevelopment of the former Titan Works site into residential properties. Consultation was carried out with the Council to agree that the Development constituted ‘minor’ development and that a full detailed air quality assessment was not required. Instead an exposure test was undertaken, against the criteria set out in the TPG.

Similar assessments have also been undertaken for residential developments in Brighouse, Halifax, Shipley.

Solution – Given the classification of the Development as ‘minor’, mitigation (as stipulated by the TPG) was proposed in the form of construction dust measures, electric vehicle charging points and minimum boiler specifications.
