Air Quality Action Day came to NW8

Your councillors arranged for an Air Quality Action Day to be held in St John’s Wood on 14th November and were joined by local people and air quality marshals who engaged with drivers about the harmful effects of engine idling. This day is part of Westminster City Council’s #DontBeIdle campaign which seeks to raise awareness of the harmful effects of engine idling and persuade drivers to turn off their engines while stationary. As James Hewitt, a leading component of air quality here in NW8 said "this initiative is welcome as we try hard to tackle air quality and climate change which is considered by residents across the Borough as their number one concern".
