Have your say on air pollution monitors in Streatham



Lambeth’s Sustainability team are currently developing plans to install new micro air quality monitoring stations across the borough and we need your help in identifying suitable locations for these. 

As air pollution in Lambeth continues to reach dangerous levels, Green councillors have been campaigning for the installation of these monitoring stations which will measure Nitrogen Dioxide, PM10, PM2.5, Ozone, Temperature and relative Humidity in order to provide accurate data on hyper local air quality conditions.

St Leonard’s Green councillors now want to hear your suggestions for where the monitoring stations should be located to provide the most useful and reliable air quality data for Streatham’s residents.

Suggested monitoring station locations should be:

·         In close proximity to sensitive receptors (schools/ hospitals/ public spaces)
·         In air quality focus areas and sources of pollution (Town centres/ main roads/ major    developments)
·         Easily accessible on public land (preferably lamp posts on the highway)

Please send your ideas to Councillor Jonathan Bartley on jbartley@lambeth.gov.uk

Please note the monitoring stations will need a permanent power source. If you can provide as much of the following information as possible when submitting locations that would be great:

-          Google earth screen shot/link
-          Photograph of power source location 
-          Street name and post code (where applicable)
-          Justification for inclusion i.e outside x school
