Cleaner air for Lee Green?

The London Mayor is proposing an ultra low emissions zone which will extend to the South Circular. Letters arrived after Christmas but if you missed yours, this explains the proposal.

London currently operates a London-wide Low Emission Zone which affects heavy vehicles. Currently the LEZ requires all heavy vehicles to meet a Euro IV Particulate Matter (PM) standard or pay a daily charge of £200 and all vans and minibuses to meet a Euro 3 PM standard or pay a daily charge of £100.

The Mayor has now confirmed the introduction of an Ultra Low Emission Zone (ULEZ) in central London from 8 April 2019. The ULEZ will apply 24 hours a day, every day of the year. All vehicles that do not meet emission standards will be liable to pay a daily charge to drive within the zone. The ULEZ will replace the current T-Charge.

The proposals:

Introduce tougher emissions standards for the Low Emission Zone from 2020, so that they affect heavy vehicles London wide
Expanding the ULEZ from central London up to, but not including, the North and South Circulars in 2021 for light vehicles (excluding taxis), so that all vehicles in this inner London area are subject to emissions standards
