Airshed C - Nelson City

Airshed C covers the remainder of the Nelson urban area.

Land use mainly comprises residential housing and accommodation. The area is complex in geography comprising valleys and coastal flats. The common characteristic of Airshed C is that it has sufficient air movement created by drainage air flowing out of valleys and coastal breezes to disperse PM10 which prevents high concentrations occurring.
