The London Wood Burning Project is funded by the Defra Air Quality Grant Scheme that provides funding to eligible local authorities to help improve air quality.

The project commenced in late 2022 with fifteen member boroughs and a survey of the wood burning habits, and awareness of the health impacts, across the project member boroughs.

We then commissioned a report on the health impacts of domestic wood burning across London, and an air quality data collection exercise, to measure the concentrations of PM2.5 air pollution from wood burning both indoors and outdoors during the winter of 2022/2023.

The boroughs of Hackney, Hammersmith and Fulham, Hounslow, and Southwark have joined the project during 2023, bringing the total membership to nineteen of the London boroughs.
