Answer for ULEZ

Answer for ULEZ

Answered By: 
The Mayor

I was elected on a mandate to implement measures that match the scale of London's air quality challenge. This is why I have committed to consulting shortly on a major set of initiatives, including a new emissions charge from next year for the most polluting vehicles driving in central London and options to extend the boundary of the Ultra Low Emission Zone and/or bring forward its start date.

I want Londoners to have a genuine say on these proposals and I will therefore make any assurances following the outcome of this consultation.
