Air quality

Why air quality is important

Good air quality is essential for our health. It also helps to make Fife a pleasant place to live, work and visit.

Many things can affect air quality, for example traffic, factories producing fumes or power stations burning coal and oil.

Fife's air quality is generally good.  But in some areas there's a higher level of air pollution.  This mainly comes from the volume of traffic on the roads.

We can all help to keep the quality of the air in Fife good, and even improve it.
