What is ULEZ?

The Ultra-Low Emission Zone is a scheme implemented by London Mayor, Sadiq Khan, based on an original proposal from Boris Johnson when he was Mayor. It currently operates in the central London Congestion Charge area for all vehicles.

Sadiq Khan has now proposed to extend the Zone to the whole of London for commercial vehicles in 2020 and out to the A406/A205, North and South Circular Roads for motorcycles, cars, light vans and minibuses from October 2021.

Charges start at £12.50 per day for non-exempt motorcycles, cars, vans and minibuses. Larger vehicles pay more.

WHO PAYS?

Everybody driving a non-exempt vehicle inside the zone, 24-7-365.

  • A pensioner, driving their sick partner to hospital – £12.50
  • A carer on the minimum wage working 6 days a week – £75.00 a week
  • A nurse or hospital orderly doing a night shift , where public transport is not an option – £12.50 to go to work. £12.50 to come home
  • There are no exemptions for residents living in the zone or disabled drivers or Blue Badge holders. Only specially adapted disabled vehicles are exempt.

Why does Sadiq Khan want to expand the ULEZ?

Sadiq Khan is basing his argument on the need to reduce emissions. But more emissions come from industry and from domestic and commercial gas usage than from motorcycles, cars, light vans and minibuses.

The campaign is being run by 3RD PARTY LTD. A registered third party with the Electoral Commission (PEF number 10354) and also registered with the ICO as a data controller.
