Engine Idling is damaging our community

Westminster suffers from the worst air pollution in the country. With 9.9 million drivers in the capital and 370 million miles driven in Westminster each year, road transport contributes to more than half of the most deadly emissions. You may have noticed the new banner by the entrance to our park.

Our local Councillor Ray Lancashire has been a passionate campaigner for several years and we are also lucky to have had his invaluable help in our gardening sessions, as a founder member of the Friends group.

When you renew your road tax, you are invited to pledge to turn your engine off when you stop your car but Westminster Council are also encouraging you to sign their pledge too.  Please take a few moments to read this page and talk to your neighbours and friends. So many people don’t realise the harm they are doing to themselves and others.
