Local people raising awareness of air pollution and taking action to reduce it.
Formed in 2017, Clean Air Merton is a group of residents and community groups who want to bring attention to air pollution in the borough and influence action clean up the toxic air that is poisoning our communities.
They are asking for the following:
20mph speed limits on all roads
discourage unnecessary idling of stationary vehicles
work with schools and nurseries to introduce some car-free roads in their vicinity
support Merton's inclusion in the proposed Ultra Low Emission Zone
encourage cycling and walking
plant more trees
Sustainable Merton works with the group on issues relating to our aims around Air Quality (one of our 4 key themes).
