There are no plans to extend the boundary of the central London Congestion Charge Zone.

Proposal 21 of my draft Transport Strategy sets out that Transport for London would support boroughs that wished to introduce local traffic reduction measures, including, for example, local congestion charges. Any such proposed scheme would be led by the borough.

I will soon be consulting on proposals to extend the Ultra Low Emission Zone London-wide for coaches, buses and lorries and to inner London for cars, vans and motorcycles but this would not affect the boundary of the Congestion Charge Zone.
