London Wide Ultra Low Emission Zone


Transport for London is consulting on roposals to expand the Ultra Low Emission Zone (ULEZ) London-wide on 29 August 2023. They want to hear your views on the proposals to expand the ULEZ, remove the annual registration fee for auto-pay, changes to fines for the ULEZ, and changes to the Mayor of London's Transport Strategy. TfL are also seeking views on what the priorities should be as they think about the future of road user charging. 

Summary of results: 

The Mayor of London has decided to expand the ULEZ to the GLA boundary.  

The Mayor received a report from us detailing the findings of the consultation, which formed part of his decision making process.  

The consultation sought views on the ULEZ expansion, possible future road charging schemes, changing the way Auto-pay works, increasing the penalty charge notices for ULEZ and the Congestion Charge as well as, an amendment to the Mayor’s Transport Strategy.  

As a result of the consultation and the Mayoral decision to expand the ULEZ we have also decided to;  

  • Remove the annual £10 per vehicle Auto Pay registration fee to make it easier for people with non-compliant vehicles to pay the charge and avoid unnecessary penalty charges. 
  • Increase the penalty charge notice for non-payment of the ULEZ and Congestion Charges from £160 to £180 (or £90 if paid within 14 days) to ensure it remains an effective deterrent

To support the ULEZ expansion, the Mayor has announced that he is funding a £110m scrappage scheme for low income and disabled Londoners, charities micro businesses and sole traders to help take the most polluting vehicles off London’s roads.

Consultation start date 20 May 2022
