Answer for ULEZ & T-Charge

Answered By: 
The Mayor

I want Londoners to have a genuine say on how we tackle London's air quality crisis. This is why I have started a staged consultation process to ensure we take into account different views and to provide more detailed analysis along the way,

I am currently seeking Londoners' views on whether I should introduce the T-charge and expand the ULEZ. The results of the current consultation will be published later in the summer and, alongside ongoing stakeholder engagement, this will inform more detailed statutory consultations. While it is too early to specify impacts, in line with best practice, TfL will be undertaking a full impact assessment of all of these air quality proposals. These will include the economic impacts and health benefits of each proposal.

Subject to the outcome of the current consultation, TfL would undertake a statutory consultation on the T-charge this autumn and a further stage next year on changes to the ULEZ.
