Look at data from air quality monitoring sites

We currently have four air quality monitoring sites in the borough that provide historic and predicted air pollution levels to the London Air Quality Network website, along with 50 nitrogen dioxide tubes (extended from January 2018) at locations around the borough.

A new state of the art supersite funded by the Natural Environment Research Council (NERC) and led by NERC Centre for Atmospheric Science (NCAS) was setup in Lewisham 2019.  

Our five real-time monitoring sites are in:

  • Loampit Vale (in Lewisham town centre)

  • New Cross

  • Catford

  • Deptford

  • With the supersite at Honor Oak Park.

The locations of our current nitrogen dioxide tubes are detailed in our most recent Air quality annual status report. Read our air quality action plan and other reports.
