Councils secure £3m in air quality funding

DEFRA has released just over £3m to 28 English local authority air quality projects.

Half of the 2018/19 Air Quality Grant has gone to only five authorities, of the 24 which secured funding.

At £418,000, the biggest winner is the ‘Clean Air Village 1’ project organised by central London’s Cross River Partnership, under the auspices of Westminster City Council but run across the boroughs of Lambeth, Hammersmith and Fulham, Islington, Kensington and Chelsea and Lewisham too. It will find the expansion of a freight and delivery consolidation scheme currently running at ten air quality hotspots.
