About the Sussex Air Quality Partnership (SAQP)
The Sussex Air Quality Partnership promotes improvements in air quality related issues in Sussex. The partnership provides assistance to members and information to the public via this web-site with recent air quality data, news updates, educational resources, links and other services such as airAlert.
The partnership was formed in 1995 as a response both to Central Government, who had produced a document "Air Quality: Meeting the Challenge", and to do more local work looking at air quality in Sussex.
The partnership is made up from representatives from City, Borough and District Councils in East and West Sussex, East and West Sussex County Councils, the Sussex Health Protection Agency, Sussex Primary Care Trusts, the Environment Agency, the University of Sussex and the University of Brighton.
