Airshed B1 - Tahunanui
Airshed B1 is a coastal flat bounded by the Port Hills on one side and Tasman Bay on the other. The area was developed for housing early in Nelsons settlement and contains a range of housing ages.
Tahunanui also contains the Cities largest light industrial area which contains a number of industrial boilers burning wood and coal as well as transport emissions from vehicles on State Highway (6) and main roads such as Nayland Rd and Annesbrook Drive along with aircraft operating from Nelson Airport.
The variety of PM10 sources in Airshed B require a greater range of management responses. Progress is being made improving air quality in the area.
