Healthier and Greener City – Westminster Case Study: EMISSIONS & AIR QUALITY Smart Class Retrospective


See Related event

Air Quality is top of the agenda for Westminster City Council and the Council views tackling air quality with a sense of urgency. Westminster suffers from the worst air pollution in the country and, with nearly 10 million drivers in the capital and 370 million miles driven in Westminster each year, road transport contributes to more than half of the most deadly emissions.

At EMISSIONS & AIR QUALITY Smart Class 2019, Tim Mitchell, Westminster’s Cabinet Member for Environment and City Management, explained how their approach is to focus on reducing the sources of pollution while helping residents and visitors to take action in reducing their exposure to dirty air. Tim outlined a variety of initiatives to improve air quality that utilise different methods in pollution reduction, including Electric Vehicles, #Don’tBeIdle and the School Clean Air Fund. He also discussed Westminster’s technologically and data driven policies and interventions, including their involvement in the monitoring project ‘Breathe London’, trialling of innovative technologies ranging from green infrastructure to retrofitting the council’s waste vehicle fleet, use of data driven evaluation of parking projects and work on eliminating unnecessary vehicle idling.
