Clean Air day

Today, the area has high footfall and vehicles which bring air quality challenges. The BID partners with Westminster City Council and the local community to support local initiatives such as the Business Low Emission Neighbourhood. This bought a real focus to the problem with on-street greening and behaviour change activities.

 

The Northbank team has worked with CRP for CAV 3 & 4 and Healthy Streets Every Day with funding from MAQF and Defra. These are bringing forward projects that support walking and cycling and also promoting low emission alternatives for local deliveries such as the Cargo bike.

Clean Air Villiages 4 (CAV)

The Northbank BID is working with Cross River Partnership (CRP)to help tackle local air pollution which is part of our wider air quality initiatives. Cross River Partnership (CRP) is delivering the Clean Air Villages 4 project, funded by Defra’s Air Quality Grant, with Westminster City Council as the leading partner, to improve local air quality in 16 different London ‘villages’, where both air pollution and population density levels are high.

Cross River Partnership (CRP) is a sub-regional partnership that delivers projects to make London a great place to live, work and visit.

The joint initiatives bring collective projects with 12 London boroughs and 4 Business Improvement Districts, to improve air quality in 16 different London ‘villages’, where both air pollution and population density levels are high. The project aims to deliver local solutions across the 16 villages, hold 16 air quality workshops/webinars, and engage with 128 businesses via 121 meetings in total.

Westminster Air Quality Action Day – Tuesday 15 June

We’re inviting residents and businesses to talk about air quality at an action day on the Strand and Regent Street next week. Westminster is hosting a special action day with a visit from the ‘Smogmobile’, a mobile laboratory that provides real-time air quality readings to help explain the importance of addressing air pollution. It will be supported by the Northbank BID, New West End Company (NWEC) and officers from the Licensed Taxi Drivers’ Association (LTDA). Come along to the Strand (opposite McDonald’s) from 8.30 am to 12 pm or Regent Street (near Hamley’s) from 1 pm to 4 pm to see the Smogmobile and meet the team.
