We all know air pollution in London is bad but how bad is it exactly where we live?
To find out what the situation is exactly in our part of North West London, Transition Kensal to Kilburn and Transition Willesden carried out an air pollution monitoring project in 2016 (click here for results).
If you want to find out what the quality of the air is in North West London nowadays, you can check the Breathe London website.
You can click on the different air pollution monitoring stations located in the area and find out what the levels of particulate matter (PM 2.5) and nitrogen dioxide (NO2) are.
Six years since TTKK measured air pollution in the area, the air quality in our part of North West London remains poor. However, since October 2021, Brent south is covered by the Ultra Low Emission Zone (ULEZ). That has led to a 20% drop in NO2 across the expanded ULEZ zone, according to a report published by the Mayor of London in July 2022.
