Improving Air Quality

The Sussex Air Quality Partnership (Sussex-air) was established over 10 years ago to support Sussex authorities with their duties under Environment Act 1995 and implementation of the United Kingdom Air Quality Strategy. Areas of interest to the partnership include policy and research into air quality to; understand the sources of pollution, reduce its' impacts where possible, inform and protect vulnerable people and to deliver improvements in air quality, working with a regional focus.

As air quality is not just a local issue, but a regional, European and global issue, Sussex-air works with and provides a link to various local, regional, non-government, government and European bodies. This provides us with linkages to wider issues including Climate Change, Strategic Health Policy, EU and UK air quality developments, regional initiatives, research and government policy.
