The Labour Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, has introduced an Ultra Low Emission Zone in Central London, covering the same area as the Congestion Charging zone.
He also plans to expand the Ultra Low Emission Zone out to the A406 and A205, North and South Circular roads in October 2021. This will mean anybody driving within the zone in a non-exempt vehicle, having to pay £12.50. The charge will apply 24/7/365 and there are no resident discounts or exemptions.
So if you went from Chingford or Highams Park to Whipps Cross Hospital, or to Westfield Shopping Centre, or to Waltham Forest Town Hall, you would be charged £12.50 if you vehicle was not exempt from the charge. We think this is wrong and will hit older and lower paid people who cannot afford to change their vehicles.
You can check if your vehicle is exempt or not, here: http://tiny.cc/checkmyvehicle.
