Clean Air Villages – What has the team been up to?27th October 2020 / Posted by Rachael Aldridge
The CRP Clean Air Villages (CAV) team has been busy engaging with communities & businesses and implementing solutions in all 16 villages. Across London, the CAV team has contacted over 235 businesses to offer support and help find new solutions for their current challenges.
The Air Quality Ambassador Programme with City of London Corporation has launched and is already recruiting ambassadors, with the first workshop in the next few weeks to train those who have signed up! CRP have launched cargo bike trials in Deptford (London Borough of Lewisham), Wimbledon (London Borough of Merton), Tooting (London Borough of Wandsworth) and Richmond (London Borough of Richmond upon Thames), with businesses taking advantage of free hours to have cleaner local deliveries. CRP have also completed the monitoring of 15 Clean Air Walking routes and current transport levels in the air quality hot spots are being understood via Vivacity cameras.
