Monitoring air quality

The Council monitors the air quality in our district to ensure that it meets or exceeds DEFRA Air Quality Objectives

We also protect local air quality by acting as a consultee on planning applications and overseeing environmental permitting to control pollution from certain industrial processes.

We are a member of the Sussex Air Quality Partnership which promotes improvements in air quality across Sussex.

As a member of Sussex Air, we support their Air Alert service, which sends free messages to users informing that poor air quality is predicted in their area of Sussex.

You can read our recent Air Quality Reports here:
