In their planning application CE say that this development will produce an additional 9194 tonnes of co2, compared to a total of 835,100 for the whole of Chichester DC, and therefore as it represents only a 1.1% increase "overall it is concluded that the air quality impacts of the proposal are insignificant".

However another way of looking at it, is that Chichester DC produces on average 10.6 te per hectare (Chichester DC covers an area of 786.3 square kilometres), whereas CE's proposed development would produce a staggering 4463 te per hectare (42,000% more than the average).
