  • Our Thoughts

    To protect the health of all Londoners, we need the Mayor to set the best standards available to make the existing Low Emission Zone more effective

    Our Thoughts

    Vehicles that meet this standard have been available since 2013. We need urgent action to tackle illegal and harmful levels of air pollution in the shortest time possible

    Our Thoughts

    The daily charges should be used to start discouraging the use of the dirtiest vehicles as soon as possible

    Our Thoughts

    Cars and vans are significant sources of air pollution, especially outside of central London. Even the newest diesel cars are still polluting more on the road than in the official laboratory tests and on average emit more NOx emissions than new lorries

    Our Thoughts

    We believe that all Londoners should be able to breathe cleaner air as soon as possible. The Mayor has a duty to ensure that legal limits are met in the shortest time possible across Greater London – not just the area within the North and South Circular roads

    Our Thoughts

    A bigger and better ULEZ for all vehicles should be introduced as soon as possible

    Our Thoughts

    Cars and vans are significant sources of air pollution, especially outside of central London

    Our Thoughts

    The daily charge should be used to start discouraging the use of the dirtiest vehicles as soon as possible

    Our Thoughts

    The PCN should be used to start discouraging the use of the dirtiest vehicles as soon as possible

    Our Thoughts

    We have put together further comments to get you started that covers the main points we think the Mayor needs to hear:

    • The Mayor must strengthen the existing Low Emission Zone for heavy duty vehicles so that only the cleanest vehicles can enter Greater London
    • London needs a stronger, bigger Ultra Low Emission Zone brought in sooner. An Ultra Low Emission Zone for all vehicles covering all of Greater London will help meet legal limits in the shortest time possible and protect all Londoners from toxic air
    • These proposals should support the Mayor’s draft Transport Strategy aim to encourage fewer and cleaner vehicles on our roads, as well as setting a path towards a zero emissions future

    Feel free to write your own that covers the three points above, or just use ours!

    To protect the health of all Londoners, we need the Mayor to set the best standards available to make the existing Low Emission Zone more effective

Thanks

Thanks for completing the consultation. We have just sent an email to the Mayor on your behalf. A copy of the email, and your responses, should be in your inbox now.

And don't forget to spread the word! The more voices, the better.

Soon after his election the Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, called for new proposals to help tackle London’s lethal air pollution. The Mayor has already introduced the T-Charge in central London, bought forward the start date of the Ultra Low Emission Zone (ULEZ) for central London to 8 April 2019 and announced a series of measures to clean up London’s bus fleet.

City Hall is now consulting on detailed proposals for two further initiatives to improve London’s air. These involve:
