Monitoring and Improvement of Air Quality
This is a potential future project.
A number of grants are available from the Mayor of London, notably in relation to air quality. In particular, the Mayor of London is offering an Air Quality grant, for which applications are to be submitted by 11 January 2019.
This fund is only available to London boroughs, which are encouraged to work with local groups.
Applications are invited for projects, including the following:
- a pan-London anti-idling project, to include on street enforcement against idling
- a pan-London project to inspect construction sites to ensure that they are only using approved and lower-pollution machinery. Construction machinery is currently the third largest contributor to air pollution in the capital
- Low Emission Neighbourhoods (LENs) – we will fund up to 4 new LENs with up to £500,000 each.
- pedestrianisation, road closures and car-free schemes in partnership with local communities.
