Request a new electrical vehicle charging point in your neighbourhood

Lambeth Council is encouraging residents to suggest locations for the new electrical vehicle charging points that are set to be rolled out across the borough in the next few years.

Local councillors Paul Gadsby and Annie Gallop have successfully campaigned for more vehicle charging points in Myatt’s Fields following feedback from the local community: Lambeth Council confirmed in July that five would be installed in the next year. The news has been followed by an announcement of new funding for other “sustainable travel” projects in Myatt’s Fields after a petition about ongoing traffic concerns in the area was organised by Cllr Gadsby and Cllr Gallop.

Residents who own an electrical vehicle or are thinking about buying one, can suggest a charging point for their street or estate by filling in this form.

Lambeth launches Air Quality Action Plan consultation

Lambeth Council has launched a new consultation asking for residents’ views on how to improve air quality in the borough.

According to results from recent studies, air quality has been improving in Lambeth since 2014, but as with other parts of London, pollution remains high.

Responding to this challenge, the Council states in its introduction to the consultation:

Lambeth Council has put together an Air Quality Action Plan that sets out the steps we will take to reduce air pollution in the borough. Here’s what’s included:

  • A commitment to pursuing, ambitious long term air quality targets.
  • Support for most at-risk groups: the young, the elderly, those with a pre-existing health condition, and residents in the most polluted areas.

There are air quality policy areas that are outside of our influence and so we will continue to work with regional and central government on policies and issues beyond Lambeth’s influence.

As part of our response to air pollution in Lambeth, we will be setting up an Air Quality Forum to allow residents to continue to have their say on the work we are doing to improve air quality in the borough.”
