Air quality

Clean air is essential to a good quality of life.

​Poor air quality can have a significant effect on people’s health, particularly those with heart and/or respiratory conditions. Air pollutants can arise from a variety of sources, including transport, industry and the commercial and domestic sectors. The main source of air pollution in South Gloucestershire is road traffic.

We have a legal duty to manage air quality in South Gloucestershire. We monitor air quality at a large number of locations across the area and produce reports based on the data, which are submitted to the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra).
