Improving Air Quality in Hammersmith Grove

Hammersmith and Fulham council are working to reduce local air pollution levels in Hammersmith Grove and make your neighbourhood more pleasant. They would like your views on some plans their developing.

Eventually, we would all like the neighbourhood to be the borough’s first ‘zero emission zone’. To do that, we need to reduce vehicle emissions either by encouraging people to switch to lower emission cars or to walk, cycle or use public transport more often.

What are the changes?

The council are proposing changes to the southern end of Hammersmith Grove between Glenthorne Road and Beadon Road.

They’d like to:

  • make Hammersmith Grove one-way southbound from Glenthorne Road
  • build new electric vehicle charging points, including a rapid-charging point
  • convert some of the existing parking space to ‘parklets’ which include seating areas, plants and cycle parking facilities
  • remove the bus shelter for the bus stand – no passengers wait to board a bus here
  • install a new air quality monitoring station
  • work with local businesses to help them move to less polluting servicing and delivery vehicles.
  • The proposals will only go ahead if the majority of respondents support it, so please let us have your views.

    The deadline for comments is 15 December 2017.
