Air Quality and Transport


Key areas of work

LEDNet has a dedicated 'cluster' to drive forward work on air quality and transport. LEDNet’s air quality and transport cluster focuses on addressing London’s air pollution, particularly given the changes experienced during the Covid-19 pandemic. The cluster looks to understand how sustainable travel adopted during lockdown can be upheld as London looks to shift away from fossil-fuel vehicles to cleaner and greener modes of travel. 
LEDNet held four workshops in 2020/21, each focusing on a specific theme to share learning amongst boroughs and identify common challenges boroughs are facing in that chosen theme, with the intention of developing actions to address the issues. 
2020/21 workshops and themes
  • Thursday 2 July 2020: Covid-19 and active travel:
  • Wednesday 23 September: 2020 Restricting parking
  • Thursday 5 November 2020: Installing low emission charging infrastructure 
  • Monday 18 January 2021: Planning and development measures 
2021/22 workshops and themes

  • Tuesday 2 November, 14:00 – 16:00
  • Tuesday 8 February 2022, 14:00 – 16:00
