Wealden District Council

Air quality and planning applications

Environmental Health plays an important role in protecting local air quality by acting as a consultee on planning applications.

Air quality is a material planning consideration because new developments have the potential to affect or be affected by air quality. We make recommendations for Air Quality Assessments as part of the planning process where it is deemed necessary.

Recommendations for developers and consultants are available on our Air Quality Assessments page.
