Clean air is an essential ingredient of a good quality of life. People have a right to expect that the air that they breathe will not harm them. Industry, vehicles and many other sources can increase the levels of pollutants that can cause harm to human health.
The pollutants of interest in the New Forest are mainly sourced from vehicles in towns and villages, and from industry. Along Southampton Water much of the shoreline is influenced by industrial development (there are 13 industrial processes permitted by the Environment Agency) with the landscape being dominated by a petrochemical complex which is one of the largest in Europe.
The current air quality monitoring results and reports for New Forest can be found at : air quality
