Proposals to expand the London ULEZ to Kent borders from 2023

Proposals to expand the London ULEZ to Kent borders from 2023

A proposed expansion could see London’s Ultra-Low Emission Zone (ULEZ) reach the borders of Kent and affect the A2, A20 and A21 from next year. Transport for London (TFL) have been asked to consult on expanding the area on August 29, 2023 which is intended to help the Mayor of London fulfil his promise of improving air quality and reducing traffic congestion across Greater London.  A daily charge of £12.50 would be applicable to non-compliant vehicles driving within the new zone, including residents. Obviously there would be no charge for vehicles... Read full article

Manchester CAZ delayed

Manchester CAZ delayed

The government recently granted permission to Manchester authorities to delay the implementation of the Manchester Clean Air Zone following concerns about the impact of Covid-19 on supply chains and the price and availability of second-hand vehicles.  Evidence provided by Greater Manchester clearly showed that these impacts would make it harder for people to upgrade to cleaner vehicles and therefore the Clean Air Zone would be unlikely to deliver compliance with legal limits by the original date of 2024. In light of this, the Mayor of Greater Manchester Andy... Read full article

Road pricing is an inevitable solution to the motoring tax gap, says the BVRLA

Road pricing is an inevitable solution to the motoring tax gap, says the BVRLA

The British Vehicle Rental and Leasing Association (BVRLA), along with representatives from the RAC foundation, the Renewable Energy Association (REA) and the Road Haulage Association (RHA) have voiced their opinions to the Transport Committee that a new road pricing scheme should be developed urgently in order to achieve a smooth transition from the current emissions-based tax scheme.  Following the Treasury’s Net Zero review, the BVRLA say that road pricing will be an inevitable solution to the £37billion void...

Oxford will launch its Zero Emission Zone pilot in February 2022

Oxford City Council and Oxfordshire County Council have confirmed that the city will introduce Britain’s first Zero Emission Zone (ZEZ) pilot in February 2022.   The registration system for exemptions and discounts, including for businesses and residents in the zone, will go live in December 2021 in preparation for the launch.  The ZEZ, approved in March 2021, was originally set to go live in August 2021. This deadline was postponed to avoid disruption during the run up to Christmas, which is a crucial time for businesses recovering from the... Read full article

Ultra-low emission vehicles count for almost 1 in 7 new car sales in 2021

Ultra-low emission vehicles count for almost 1 in 7 new car sales in 2021

The government has announced that “the UK is at the forefront of the electric revolution as nearly 1 in 7 new car sales so far in 2021 have a plug”. Ultra low emission vehicles account for more than half-a-million cars on UK roads – a ‘landmark figure’ which has been revealed ahead of the UK hosting the 2021 United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP26).  Transport Secretary Grant Shapps said, “As hosts of COP26, we want to drive decarbonisation on the global stage, which is why we’re going...

The UK government commits to cutting carbon emissions by 78% 15 years ahead of schedule

The UK government commits to cutting carbon emissions by 78% 15 years ahead of schedule

The government has made new climate change commitments, based on the advice of its independent Climate Change Committee (CCC) which will enable the UK to cut its carbon emissions by 78% by 2035 – 15 years earlier than planned.  Climate law will, for the first time, cover aviation and shipping – likely making it more expensive for frequent fliers. To meet this new deadline, more people drivers need to make the switch to electric vehicles (EVs) and walk or cycle more, rather than driving, homes will need to be much better insulated to reduce the...
