88391125-1862-4bd7-b932-012d79e34173Poor air quality has a direct impact upon our health and life expectancy, and has been linked to an increased number of premature deaths each year. Queen’s Park Community Council are considering a proposal, put forward by our most environmentally aware gardener Ray, for attaching low-tech Diffusion Tubes onto lighting columns (Street Lamps) around the Queen’s Park Council Wards from Harrow Road to Kilburn Lane. Diffusion tubes are designed for passive monitoring of gaseous airborne Nitrogen Dioxide (NO2). Similar projects have been conducted in Brent and Kensal Triangle.

If you are interested in joining us to attach diffusion tubes or would like more information about how poor air quality affects our health please email
