Lambeth Air Quality Action Plan – open for consultation

Lambeth has drafted a new Air Quality Action Plan, which details proposals to improve air quality, raise awareness, and reduce exposure to air pollution during 2017-2022. The plan will be presented to Cabinet for approval, but first an open consultation on the plan will run until 15 November. 

For more information about the consultation and to see a copy of the Air Quality Action Plan, please visit www.lambeth.gov.uk/AQAP. To give your comments on the plan, please complete our online feedback form or email sustainability@lambeth.gov.uk.

On average, air pollution in Thurlow Park ward is lower than in many other parts of the borough. However, air pollution knows no borders, and also this does not mean that there are no air quality hotspots, ie local areas where air pollution is above limits.  As a rule of thumb, the closer to any main or busy road and the less natural air flow, the more likely it is the air pollution will be higher in any place in London.
