Clean Air Villages 3: Grays Inn Road
Cross River Partnership (CRP) delivered the Clean Air Villages 3 (CAV3) Project, engaging local businesses to find an air quality solution along the Air Quality Focus Area of Grays Inn Road, where both air pollution and population density levels are high. CRP is working with the London Borough of Camden and the Camden Climate Change Alliance to support businesses in the area, offering tailored advice that enabled them to save time and money, whilst also improving local air quality.
Funded by Defra’s Air Quality Grant, CAV3 seeks to improve local air quality in 16 different London ‘villages’, where both air pollution and population density levels are high.
Support available to businesses
An online workshop will be held on 19th November 2020 covering key support available and providing an opportunity to ask questions. Please contact the CCCA to register for the event firstname.lastname@example.org

Camden consolidation hub
Businesses in the Grays Inn Road CAV area are offered free use of Camden’s consolidation hub: this will reduce the frequency of deliveries, reducing congestion and pollution.
Clean Air Route Finder
Developed as part of CAV, the Clean Air Route Finder shows the clean air routes in the Camden area, for walking and cycling, which will reduce your exposure to air pollution. Find out more information in the Euston to Kings Cross walking leaflet.
The DeliverBEST tool shares practical, proven solutions, making deliveries to businesses more efficient, whilst saving time, money and improving air quality. Find more information in the deliverBEST leaflet
Gray’s Inn Road CAV Directory
The CRP Clean Air Villages Directory lists local businesses who deliver their services by ultra-low emission, to emphasise their initiative in improving local air quality, as well as encourage other businesses to adopt ultra-low methods of delivery. As part of the project, Grays Inn Road has a dedicated Directory page. Currently, 23 businesses across London deliver to the Grays Inn Road area via ultra-low emission.
CRP is also trialling CleanCar Dongles with businesses who are looking to switch to electric vehicle – please contact Laura Jacklin at CRP for more information.
