ULEZ set come to a number of London boroughs bordering Thurrock

THE Ultra Low Emission Zone (ULEZ) will be expanded to cover all London Boroughs, including Havering, from next Tuesday (29 August).

This means that, if your vehicle does not comply with the ULEZ standards, you will have to pay £12.50 per day to use your car on ULEZ-covered streets. 

You can check to see if your vehicle meets the ultra-low emission standards using the TfL website

The expansion of the zone has been incredibly unpopular in outer-London boroughs, where public transport links are not as well-connected and readily available as central London. 

As part of the expansion, the Mayor of London has introduced a scrappage scheme to support those with non-compliant cars to upgrade to a new, eco-friendly vehicles. Unfortunately, the scheme is only available to those that live in London, so people and businesses outside of the borough that need to drive in for work, are not eligible for any support. 

Havering has called on the Mayor of London to stop the expansion of the zone, and allow residents and businesses to replace their vehicles in their own time, without getting into huge and unnecessary debt.
