 Environment South West 2001
Government air quality statistics show that air quality in the South West is generally good with low levels of sulphur, nitrogen dioxides and particulates in comparison to the rest of England.
This is due to the fact that concentrations tend to be highest in the southern regions, near the coast and at high altitudes because high temperatures and sunshine levels promote the photochemical reactions that generate ground level ozone.
High SO2 concentrations now only tend to occur in cities where coal is still widely used for domestic heating.The last 40 years have seen a decline in coal burning (domestic, industrial and in power generation) As a result, ambient concentrations of this pollutant in the UK have decreased steadily over this period.

 The SABRE Roads Website
If I look at an old map, it says the area to the south used to be called Avon and before that it was part of Gloucestershire, but it is no longer part of Gloucestershire because if it was, it would be called Gloucestershire, not South Gloucestershire.
Anyway (and back on topic), by splitting Avon into the City of Bristol and South Gloucestershire (plus some others), the urban area of Bristol is controlled by two different councils, which lead to the failure of a key part of a new transport system.
Gloucestershire has one, the city and county of Bristol has one and Berkshire has one even though Berkshire County Council was abolished in the 1990's.
