About air quality in Bath

Clean air matters. According to the Committee on the Medical Effects of Air Pollutants, air pollution is a contributory factor to between 28,000 to 36,000 premature deaths in the UK every year. There’s also evidence that it can cause lung damage in babies and children, and contributes to lung and heart disease in older people.
