Ultra Low Emission Zone
The new Ultra Low Emission Zone came into force in Central London on 8 April 2019 - this is a Transport for London and Mayor of London initiative to improve air quality.
The zone will cover the same area as the Congestion Charge and all vehicles passing through will need to comply with its emissions standards to avoid a fee of £12.50 per day for cars, motorcycles and vans weighing up to 3.5 tonnes and £100 per day for heavier vehicles. These will be paid in addition to the existing Congestion Charge.
The ULEZ will be extended from 25 October 2021 to include the inner London area within the North and South Circular Roads, including large parts of Haringey.
The Mayor has launched a scrappage scheme to support eligible microbusinesses and charities to be compliant with the new Ultra Low Emission Zone (ULEZ).
The Scrappage Scheme is the next step to help tackle pollution, enabling micro businesses and charities to scrap polluting vans and minibuses, and switch to cleaner vehicles.
You can check your eligibility and apply online at Transport for London's - Scrappage Scheme website (external link).
More information is available in the TFL - Scrappage Leaflet (PDF 784KB).
