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:
- car-free days in the town centre
- new technology trials to encourage the take-up of electric vehicles or vehicles with cleaner emissions
- new, green public spaces and pocket parks
- community-focused streets that are more pedestrian- and cyclist-friendly
- an incentive scheme to encourage walking and cycling
- bus priority measures
- initiatives to improve air quality in and around schools
- better management of freight and servicing transport to help reduce local pollutants in the air.
