Working with you to make Putney and Roehampton great places for living, working and enjoyment. Have your say!
WELCOME TO THE PUTNEY SOCIETY including Roehampton
The Putney Society is concerned with all aspects of the community in Putney & Roehampton which contribute to the quality of our local life.
These include the built environment and open spaces such as parks and commons; transport and community services. The Society has played a key role in the enhancement and protection of these vital facilities in Putney and Roehampton since its inception. Members receive a monthly Bulletin either by email or in a printed version which gives all the latest news and photographs relating to the Society's work and issues and much more besides. The Society's Buildings, Open Spaces, Community and Transport Panels meet regularly to review what is going on in Putney.
If you are not already a member we hope that you will join the Society to help us continue to provide an effective voice in the community.
Concerned about air quality? Why not join our Air Quality Group.
The Air Quality Group meets on an ad hoc basis to plan Citizen Science projects and to liaise with organisations such as Breathe London as well as lobbying Wandsworth Council and TfL. Because it meets irregularly it is not included in our list of regular panel meetings, but we would like to welcome new members to this group. If you are interested in joining – or just finding out more – please email email@example.com and your details will be passed to the convenor.
**** New air quality monitor on Putney Hill ****
In May 2022 Wandsworth Council installed a state-of-the-art Breathe London air quality monitor at the junction of Carlton Drive and Putney Hill. As well NO2 levels the monitor also measures PM2.5 particulates. It is hoped that this will be the first of several installations in Putney. The results can be viewed at Breathe London Monitor.
As with other air quality measurements the Society Air Quality Group will be analyzing the data to see longer term trends.
