A new voluntary body which will campaign for clean air in the borough has been officially launched in Willesden.

Clean Air for Brent (CAfB) is a coalition of residents’ associations, community groups and individuals focused on raising awareness, changing behaviours and lobbying for better measures to tackle air pollution to improve public health outcomes.

The event at Willesden Library in the High Road on October 11 was attended by Cllr Ellie Southwood, cabinet member for the environment, who said the borough’s air quality action plan will go to the council for approval in November.

CAfB has undertaken activities during its formation process including monitoring air pollution in local streets as part of a citizen science project, holding “The Air We Breathe” event in Brent Civic Centre in July, setting up a website and responding to local, regional and national consultations.

Fiona Mulaisho, chairwoman, said: “We are ready to go and looking for more volunteers.”
