Why is air quality important?​

Good Air Quality is fundamental healthy living and ensuring our emissions to air do not impact on the environment as well. By reducing pollutant emissions we are also helping to fight Climate Change and deliver a more sustainable lifestyle. 

It is estimated that long term exposure to man-made air pollution in the UK has an annual effect equivalent to 28,000 to 36,000 deaths (Public Health England – Nov 18).

Protecting the health of people

The Sussex Air Quality Partnership (Sussex Air) local authorities monitor the air quality across Sussex and provides near-real time data at key locations. We analyse the data, provide reports for national compliance requirements (LAQM) and provide advice on reducing air pollutants and minimising exposure to air pollutants. We also provide a service called Sussex Air Quality Alerts, where we send out air pollution alerts to anyone who would like to be informed. We especially provide this service for the most vulnerable individuals and schools. To register or find out more go to Sussex Air Quality Alert.
