The Ultra-Low Emission Zone is expanding to Havering. It will charge many drivers £12.50 a day just to leave their driveway unless they buy a new car.
We are concerned that this is just the “thin end of the ULEZ wedge”. The scheme will cost up to £200 million to implement. With a cost of £500,000 to Havering Council just for ULEZ compliant buses. So, we believe that the RULES WILL BE ADJUSTED AFTER A FEW YEARS TO CATCH MORE CARS.
Even if your car is ok today, will Stage 2 catch You?
The environment should be a priority but taxing the poorest, hardest working is not the solution. It would better to spend some of this money on electrifying public sector vehicles and installing smart traffic lights to reduce congestion and pollution. You can find out more about ULEZ, and better alternatives here.
That is why we must all campaign to stop ULEZ from destroying our businesses now.
There are two things you can do to stop ULEZ expansion:
1. Let Keith Prince, your Conservative GLA member, know
You can tell Keith your views at https://www.keithprince.london/contact
Keith can then present your views to the London Assembly and scrutinise Sadiq Khan's plans to expand ULEZ.
