We take improving our air quality extremely seriously. It is undoubtedly a silent killer and affects our most vulnerable residents the most.
We recently became the first London council to declare a climate emergency, reflecting the urgency of the task ahead of us, and have committed that the council will be carbon-neutral by 2030.
Air pollution is associated with a number of respiratory and cardiovascular diseases. It affects everyone, although children, older people and those with existing heart and lung conditions are most at risk. Our 2023-2025 Air Quality Action Plan outlines the actions that we are taking to improve air quality in Lambeth.
