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

This is good news - but does it cover things like emissions from 'legal' open fires used in restaurants (eg the billowing smoke from the Firehouse Hotel which covers windowcills with grime and at times can be choking. Also the smells and smoke coming from shisha bars. I know traffic is the biggest problem but those of us who remember the smogs of the 1950s watch the curling smoke with some anxiety.
