Demand change from the next mayor of London
In May 2021, London is going to the polls. It's time for London to choose its next mayor, and we want to make sure clean air is at the top of their agenda.
To clean up the air the next mayor needs to:
- Expand the Ultra-Low Emission Zone (ULEZ) across all London boroughs, to protect far more Londoners. Including schemes to financially support those who are less well-off and people with a lung condition move to cleaner forms of transport.
- Deliver safer air around schools, hospitals, care homes and GP surgeries, through pollution-busting traffic reduction schemes and behaviour change programmes.
- Promote and facilitate active travel, including funding for walking and cycling schemes, and provide support for ambitious action from the boroughs.
- Ensure that all transport fleets across London are cleaned up. This should include buses, taxis and private hire vehicles.
