The Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, has just launched a consultation on a package of measures to tackle air pollution.
It's welcome news after years of inaction from Boris. On his watch, the annual number of deaths from air pollution reached 10,000. Lambeth's inner city location makes us especially vulnerable so it's so important that we have ambitious targets and decisive action
Lambeth Labour and Lambeth for a Cool Planet have joined forces to call for a number of changes that we think will help make a real difference to Lambeth's air quality.
If you want to show your support for our campaign for cleaner air, please sign the petition here.
Lambeth Labour and Lambeth for a Cool Planet will be making a joint submission to the Mayor's consultation. On the petition page there is space to add your own comments and suggestions. These will help shape our submission and we will send all of the comments to the Mayor.
The consultation closes on 27 July so there isn't much time. Please add your name.
