Air Quality

December 2017 Update from Professor Roger Mason

The Kew Society is very actively engaged in pressing for action to improve our air quality. We have commented on Richmond Council’s draft action plan to improve air quality in the Borough and on the London Mayor’s proposals for London as a whole. You can see our responses on on these consultations here and here. We will also be commenting later this month on the London Borough of Hounslow’s draft action plan on air quality. This is in addition to the work we have been doing with the Richmond Heathrow Campaign to oppose the expansion of Heathrow. Expansion would have adverse impacts on air quality and we have yet to see credible proposals to address this.

Professor Roger Mason provided an update on air quality at our event, which was open to members and non-members alike, on 6 December. You can see his slides here.

Roger updated us on the latest assessments of air quality in Kew, on work he has been doing with Richmond Council on air quality and our schools, and on the comments we are making on the action proposed by Richmond Council, Hounslow Council and the London Mayor.
