Kingston Council have set up an air quality forum and want to hear from anyone who lives, works, studies or visits the borough. If you could kindly circulate the information below, we would be grateful.  

Air quality is one of the biggest issues we face. It has huge impacts on our health - and we need to take action to tackle it. We are committed to improving air quality across the borough by working together with residents, communities, and partners to find solutions and ideas that will improve all our lives.

On the Thursday 11 July, we’ll be holding a drop-in session to hear ideas from local residents, businesses and the voluntary sector about improving air quality, and to share with you some of our current initiatives. This Air Quality Forum will be the start of a sustained programme of activity focused on improving our air across the borough for years to come.

You are invited to attend at any time between 4pm and 7.30pm at the Guildhall. Please register for the event at to give us an idea of numbers. No need to tell us what time you plan to come along.
