The Mayor of London has decided to expand the ULEZ to all London boroughs. This does not include Essex.
The extension is set to come into force from 29 August 2023 and operates 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, every day of the year, except Christmas Day.
New ULEZ scheme
The TfL website has been updated with details of the new scheme.
Nigel Bedford, Cabinet Member for Place at Epping Forest District Council said:
We have voiced our concerns about the extension of the ULEZ through the formal consultation process.
With the south of our District bordering three London boroughs and being in close proximity to the A406, the expansion of will undoubtedly have a direct impact on our District.
Cllr Ken Williamson Cabinet Member for Technical Services added:
We share a common goal of improving air quality and reducing carbon emissions.
Having reviewed the consultation documents, in principle we support the aims of the expansion put forth by TfL but also have concerns that TfL and the Mayor of London need to address including our concerns about EFDC residents’ access to Whipps Cross Hospital and other health facilities within the zone.
