Air quality is a major issue for all of us in Marylebone

Environment & Air Quality in Marylebone

In every major city around the world there is now a growing recognition of the huge dangers posed by air pollution. According to the UN, some 3.3million premature deaths are linked to poor quality air every year, while one study has estimated the number of early deaths in the UK resulting from toxic air could be as high as 60,000 a year.

Against this stark backdrop, it’s no surprise that the World Health Organisation has described air pollution as a ‘global public health emergency’. It’s overtaken passive smoking, alcohol and obesity to become the defining public health crisis of our time.

In London – one of the richest and most well-resourced cities on earth – it’s shameful this problem has been ignored for so long. It is a scandal that air pollution claims the lives of thousands every year and that children have been allowed to grow up in our capital with stunted lungs, while no meaningful action has been taken to safeguard their health.

Marylebone is one of the worst areas with the Marylebone Road being known as one of the most polluted roads in the capital
