We ALL deserve Clean Air

With Peter Baxter campaigning in Whittlesey for better monitoring of the A605 – London and other cities which we know have ‘bigger issues’ with pollution – should not stop the rest of us wanting a better quality of air where we live.

Every child in London is breathing toxic air, mainly caused by road vehicles. To help tackle this, the Ultra Low Emission Zone (ULEZ) is coming to central London in the same area as the Congestion Charge zone.

It will operate 24 hours a day, every day of the year, from 8 April 2019.
Vehicles will need to meet the new stronger emission standards, or pay the daily ULEZ charge.

Vehicles registered for the Blue Badge Congestion Charge Discount will not receive a discount from the ULEZ. If the vehicle is driven within the zone and does not meet the ULEZ standards, the ULEZ charge will be payable from 8 April 2019.

  You will not need to pay the ULEZ charge if the vehicle is registered with the DVLA with a ‘disabled’ or ‘disabled passenger vehicle’ tax class
  You will continue to receive the 100% discount from the Congestion Charge as long as your vehicle remains registered for the Blue Badge Discount

From 25 October 2021 the central London ULEZ area will be expanded to the inner London area bounded by the North and South Circular roads.

This is part of the commitment by the Mayor, Sadiq Khan, and TfL to help Londoners breathe cleaner air
