ULEZ expansion

ULEZ expansion

ULEZ expansion to outer London

Poor air quality is a major public health issue and we take seriously the need to reduce emissions from traffic and improving public transport. However, we have concerns about the Mayor's ULEZ expansion and call for a better support scheme

In January 2023 the London Assembly debated Mayor Sadiq Khan’s budget for London for 2023-2024. The Liberal Democrat Group secured an historic amendment to the Mayor’s budget – it is simple, affordable and will be effective in helping people in Outer London to cope with the Ultra Low Emission Zone expansion.

The Lib Dems proposed:

  • A longer lead in time for people to make the change to newer vehicles
  • To double the scrappage scheme with an additional £100 million and to allow Blue Badge holders to apply.
  • To invest £50 million in bus services in Outer London, including demand-responsive buses such as Go Sutton Bus.

The amendment was carried unanimously. Labour and the Conservatives abstained.

At the next consideration of the budget in February. the Mayor rejected our proposals. Lib Dem Assembly Member Caroline Pidgeon and the Lib Dem group will continue to push for more mitigation measures to go hand in hand with the ULEZ expansion.

Ealing Liberal Democrats have been putting pressure on Labour-run Ealing Council to get the Mayor to improve the support scheme for Londoners to help them make the transition to cleaner vehicles

Amend the ULEZ scheme

We the undersigned support Liberal Democrat calls to amend the ULEZ expansion scheme with a longer lead in time for people to change vehicles, expanding who is eligible for help with the scrappage scheme and the need to invest more in outer London bus services
