Early Introduction of London’s Ultra-Low Emission Zone Confirmed

Further to the recent consultation, it has been confirmed that London’s Ultra-Low Emission Zone (ULEZ) will be introduced on 8 April 2019 (17 months earlier than originally anticipated), meaning from this date most vehicles will need to meet exhaust emission standards, or pay a daily charge, when travelling in central London.

The ULEZ will cover the same area as the current Congestion Charging Zone and will be clearly signposted where it applies. The ULEZ standards are in addition to the Congestion Charge and Low Emission Zone requirements. It will operate 24 hours a day, 365 days of the year.

The ULEZ standards is Euro VI for lorries, buses, coaches and other specialist heavy vehicles. The charge for a vehicle which does not meet these standards will be £100 and if this charge is not paid, the registered keeper will receive a £1,000 penalty charge.

The ULEZ is being introduced to reduce nitrogen oxide and particulate matter emissions, which come from transport. The aim is to encourage more walking, cycling, use of public transport and sustainable freight deliveries.
