Improving air quality in the Greenwich West and Peninsula wards

The Low Emission Neighbourhood (LEN) uses a mixture of 'smart technology' and tried-and-tested techniques to reduce transport emissions and make the area a more people-friendly neighbourhood.

Projects to improve the environment

Match-funding from the Mayor of London has enabled us to spend £2 million on projects such as an electric vehicle car club pilot scheme and more electric vehicle charging points.

Other projects include making streets more friendly for pedestrians and cyclists and running a scheme to encourage people to walk and cycle.
