Air Quality

Somers Town is bounded by highly polluted A-roads, including Euston Road, as well as St Pancras and Euston stations, which means that most of our area has illegal levels of nitrogen dioxide and high levels of health-harming particulates.

The Neighbourhood Forum is putting together a policy that aims to improve air quality in our area by discouraging polluting vehicles, encouraging active forms of travel such as walking, pushing for the highest construction standards and the greenest new buildings in our area, and promoting green infrastructure such as trees and shrubs.

We have been working with UCL’s Engineering Exchange to better understand our local air quality and to identify those actions that will have the greatest positive impact. Information about the different study areas can be found here.
