Low emission neighbourhood to be created in Greenwich

Published Friday, 15 July 2016

The Royal Borough is creating a Low Emission Neighbourhood (LEN) in Greenwich.

The scheme is focused on improving air quality in the Greenwich West and Peninsula wards. It will use a mixture of 'smart technology' and tried-and-tested techniques to reduce transport emissions and make the area a more people-friendly neighbourhood.

Funding for air quality projects

Match-funding from the Mayor of London will enable the Royal Borough of Greenwich to spend £2 million over the next three years on projects such as:

  • an electric vehicle car club pilot scheme
  • more electric vehicle charging infrastructure for residents
  • a zero emission delivery service for businesses
  • new green pocket parks
  • community-focused streets that are more pedestrian and cyclist-friendly
  • an incentive scheme to encourage walking and cycling
  • bus priority measures to improve their reliability and appeal.
