Site Observations

13/02/12 - ongoing
No specific concerns on a routine LSO site visit basis, however, it is acknowledged that this site is now within the boundary of a far more commercial farming enterprise and, at times, impact upon ambient air quality levels may be experienced due to activity close to the AQMS. It is considered that the site location no longer meets the rural siting criteria and an alternative rural location is being sought.

Narberth Information

The monitoring station is within a self-contained, air conditioned housing located at the edge of a field adjacent to a hedgerow. A quiet rural road runs to the west of the site at a distance of approximately 150 metres. The nearest main road is the B4314 at a distance of 100 metres from the site. The manifold inlet is approximately 5 metres from the nearest obstruction. The surrounding area is open and comprises fields with a small amount of light industry and farming at distances of up to 0.5 - 1.8 kilometres distance.
