Oxford Street Pedestrianisation - Update

The Marylebone Association has long-standing concerns over air quality in our area. Media attention has focused on Marylebone Road and Oxford Street but, in truth, the whole of Marylebone suffers from dangerous and unacceptable levels of air pollution.We therefore welcome Mayor Sadiq Khan's approach of extending the proposed Ultra Low Emission Zone to the North and South Circular Roads and to bring forward its implementation to 2019 from 2020. These moves together with other initiatives to reduc...

Action Against Engine Idling Day

Action Against Engine Idling Day

The Association has long campaigned against motorists who contribute to air pollution by sitting with their engines idling and we are pleased Westminster City Council taking further measures to enforce the law. The Council is seeking volunteers for an 'Idling Action Day' on 12th July to reinforce the message. Before participating, volunteers have to have attended one of two training sessions at Westminster City Hall. One session is on 5 July and the other on 7 July, both between 12noon and 2pm.

A Low Emissions Neighbourhood for Marylebone

Poor air quality in Marylebone is a major and rising concern. The area suffers from regular beaches of EU limits, with implications for the health of those all that live, visit and work here. 

Various key stakeholders in Marylebone, together with Westminster Council, have now come together to apply for something called a Low Emissions Neighbourhood (LEN) for Marylebone. If we achieve LEN status we will get one million pounds funding to implement proposals to tackle air quality. 

The LEN Bid process therefore offers us the chance to help improve matters. It would put additional resources into the area to enable behavioural and place changes. Equally importantly through, if we were to get a LEN, it should become more difficult for schemes to be introduced in surrounding areas that result in traffic displacement into Marylebone. The Marylebone LEN Funding Bid was submitted in April 2016 and we should be notified of the outcome sometime during the Summer.

See below for the Marylebone LEN Funding Bid Summary
