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.”
