CLEAN AIR NOW FOR KINGSTON SURBITON NEW MALDEN CHESSINGTON KINGSTON TOLWORTH COOMBE

Join our campaign and support calls for Kingston Council to adopt our 10-point action plan.

THE FACTS ON DIRTY AIR IN KINGSTON

18 out of 40 monitoring stations in Kingston borough report illegal levels of air pollution Cromwell Road Bus Station and Tolworth Roundabout are at almost twice the legal limits of NO2. Nitrogen Dioxide is responsible for 14,000 premature deaths in the UK Government and the council continue to just talk. Just one out of 166 budget changes in Kingston Council concerned air pollution. In January 2019, the government introduced a clean air plan, which was more concerned about banning wood burning stoves.
