Table A3. Criteria for Determining Sensitivity of Receptors


Sensitivity of Receptor


High


Criteria for Determining Sensitivity (Human Receptors) Dust Soiling Effects


Health Effects of PM10


Dwellings, museums and other culturally important collections, medium and long-term car parks and car showrooms


Medium Parks, places of work


Residential properties, hospitals, schools and residential care homes


Ecological Sites


International or national designation and the features may be affected by dust soiling


Office and shop workers not occupationally exposed to PM10


Presence of an important plant species where dust sensitivity is uncertain or locations with a national designation with features that may be affected by dust deposition


Low


Playing fields, farmland, footpaths, short-term car parks and roads


11.


Public footpaths, playing fields, parks and shopping streets


Local designation where features may be affected by dust deposition


The criteria detailed in Tables A4 and A5 were used to determine the sensitivity of the area to dust soiling effects, human health impacts and ecological impacts. Figure 20.2 details the distance bands, as detailed in Tables A4 and A5, from the site boundary for use in the construction phase assessment.
