Marylebone Low Emission Neighbourhood looks to the year ahead30th April 2018 / Posted by Rachael Aldridge
The Marylebone Low Emission Neighbourhood (LEN) programme was established in 2016 after a successful bid by Westminster City Council to the Mayor’s Air Quality Fund.
Over the next twelve months CRP will oversee the delivery of LEN interventions to improve air quality in the Marylebone area, as well as innovative mobile air quality monitoring and continued rollout of electric taxi and vehicle charging facilities, deliveries and servicing advice for businesses, a schools engagement programme and diesel surcharge scheme.
The LEN also has two dedicated Air Quality Marshals patrolling the streets of Marylebone for the next year, reminding drivers of the harm of unnecessary engine idling and asking drivers to switch off when they can. The marshals are able to issue fines of up to £80 to drivers refusing to switch off when asked. CRP produced a short video for the Marylebone LEN busting some of the myths about engine idling, and we are able to provide resources and advice to local businesses operating vehicle fleets, alongside free support to look at deliveries and servicing using the deliverBEST online tool and the West End Buyers Club.
