We the undersigned petition Brent council to lobby Transport for London with the intention that the bus routes near local schools, are switched to low emissions vehicles as a priority. In particular the following routes: 245, 79, 204, 223, which all run close to Preston Manor School.

Justification:
As part of a Clean Air campaign at Preston Manor School we are raising awareness of the impact of high air pollution and trying to highlight ways in which we can reduce emissions and its effects on our local community. So, we are asking Brent Council to lobby Transport for London's Managing Director for Surface Transport. We would like Gareth Powell (MD Surface Transport) to commit to switching the old and very polluting buses on the routes closest to schools to the new low emissions electric vehicles. There is robust scientific evidence now showing that those children living on roads or attending schools that have high levels of pollution have changes in their lungs and in the sputum from breathing in polluted air.
