Are you working with councils to promote anti engine-idling campaigns? Residents have written to me requesting such a campaign in Golders Green, can you assist in requesting the Council to do this?

In this round of the Mayor’s Air Quality Fund I am providing London’s boroughs with £500,000 for a pan-London anti-idling campaign which includes awareness raising, events, direct engagement with drivers, and enforcement against idling vehicles.

Unfortunately, Barnet have decided not to take part in this scheme. All of London’s other boroughs are active members of the project, but Barnet council have advised us that they are not willing/able to take part. I would very much welcome their participation in the scheme if they were to change their minds.
