Answered By: 
The Mayor

TfL is still working on its proposal for an Ultra-Low Emission Zone and, as you probably know, nothing is yet finalised. My officers have been engaging extensively with boroughs and stakeholders, many of which have indicated an interest in the proposal.

I recently received a letter from the Leader of Islington Council and the Cabinet Member for Sustainability at Camden Council, asking TfL to undertake a comprehensive appraisal of different boundaries.

In addition I have explained that, while we progress ULEZ, I am happy to work with any borough interested in how to develop or extend the zone in the future.
