Did you know that Brixton is in the top 20% in London for levels of traffic and pollution, but the bottom 20% in London for people who own a car? And that on high pollution days in Lambeth, visits to local GPs and treatment for respiratory problems increase significantly?
(And this is despite the fantastic news that Mayor Khan’s Low Emission Bus Zone in Brixton has seen annual mean NO2 concentrations fall by 49%.)
Do you want to change that? We do, and we’ve got some ideas we’d like you to look at.
To help tackle some of these problems, Lambeth Council is working with Transport for London on the Brixton Liveable Neighbourhood project. We want to make streets in and around Brixton safer and healthier for everyone, and tackle the climate change emergency.
Visit Brixtonstreets.commonplace.is to view the ideas and have your say.
The survey is open until Sunday 7 March 2020.
