In September 2019, the City of London released its updated Air Quality Strategy, laying out policy and action to deliver improved air quality over the 5 years to 2024. At the heart of the Mayor’s Ultra Low Emission Zone, with 500,000 daily commuters (pre-pandemic) and only 9,000 residents, and an ear in Parliament, the City of London is in a unique position to address local air pollution.
Beth Humphrey’s insightful keynote at EMISSIONS & AIR QUALITY Smart Class, South 2021 addressed recent pollution trends, the importance of collaboration with other policy makers and on-the-ground initiatives and innovations (ranging from air quality monitoring, local zero emission zones, CityAir app and business programme, pedestrian priority streets, the Cross River partnership and Clean Air Thames project to freight consolidation, the LowCity fleet emissions scheme, ULEVs, EV charging points, emission based parking charges, actions to deal with idling vehicle engines, smoke control and buildings emissions) that the City Corporation is taking/deploying to improve air quality in the Square Mile. Beth also discussed the impact of Covid on air quality levels in the City and Covid’s effect on AQAP measures, the vast majority of which were able to continue as normal.
