Date published:

The Mayor is spearheading a clean air revolution, and will put in place a host of London-wide measures to reduce pollution from vehicles and encourage cycling. However, London’s boroughs also have a key role to play in targeting local pollution, and the Mayor is supporting them through the Mayor’s Air Quality Fund (MAQF).

The MAQF is providing up to £20m over ten years, and this money is helping boroughs take targeted action to reduce local air pollution. The first round of funding (2013 – 2016) gave nearly £6m to 42 projects. This has been matched by over £10m in other funding found by the boroughs.

This report provides a brief summary of the first round of the MAQF. It also highlights some successes and what we’ve learned from the first three years of the fund.
