Air Quality & Health

The air that we breathe is an important factor in helping our lungs and body to work well. Pollutants in the air can be harmful to our health and we can all take some simple steps alongside policy decisions to help improve the air that is all around us.

Changing your mode of transport on one day a week from the using the car to walking or cycling is a positive step.

Walking or cycling is proven to provide both physical and mental health wellbeing benefits.

Turning your car off when waiting in stationary traffic or when waiting to pick someone up are simple actions we can take.

Thinking about whether you could walk instead of drive your car is something we can all do as the majority of journeys we take in the car are often short.
