An estimated 10 million adults suffer from more than one allergy and up to 1 in 5 can develop a debilitating disease as a result. Each year the number of allergy affected people increases by 5% and half are children. Though home sales in the Brighton/East Sussex area maintain a steady rise of about 6% annually, local authority projections suggest there will be more than a 10% increase in households with dependent children by 2021.
