Why is air quality important?
Poor air quality is the largest environmental risk to public health in the UK. Studies show that long-term exposure to air pollution reduces life expectancy by increasing deaths from lung, heart, and circulatory conditions. However, short-term exposure to high levels of air pollution is just as dangerous. It can make asthma worse and have a negative impact on lung function, all resulting in increased hospital admissions and mortality.
This is why the government directed local authorities to carry out studies into reducing air pollution in their areas, in the shortest time possible.
To support local authorities, a £220 million Clean Air Fund was launched in March 2018.
