Sutton Council launches petition on ULEZ expansion

Sign our petition and tell the Mayor of London why his Ultra-Low Emission Zone (ULEZ) is a bad idea for residents, businesses and visitors right now.

Why is this important?

The Mayor of London needs to hear now why rushing ahead with the expansion of the ULEZ in August 2023 is wrong for our borough.

Sutton Council has previously called on the Mayor of London to rethink his plans unless residents, businesses and visitors can benefit from:

  • improved public transport in Sutton
  • expanded scrappage scheme to allow more Sutton residents and businesses to switch to compliant vehicles
  • extended implementation date after the cost of living crisis is over

What the ULEZ is and whether it covers Sutton

What the ULEZ is and whether it covers Sutton The Ultra Low Emission Zone (ULEZ) operates 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, every day of the year, except Christmas Day (25 December)

It helps to:

  • improve air quality and Londoners' health
  • tackle climate change
  • reduce congestion

It's a Transport for London (TfL) scheme, not a borough scheme. You can find more information on the TfL website including why a ULEZ is in place.

If you are planning to drive through the ULEZ, you will need to pay the charge unless you are exempt. More details about this can be found on the TFL website including a map of the area covered.

ULEZ expansion into Sutton - August 2023

On Friday 25 November, it was announced that the ULEZ area would be expanded to cover all of London, including Sutton.

If you drive a vehicle that doesn't meet the emissions standards inside the expanded ULEZ, you could face a daily charge of £12.50. This includes residents of the ULEZ. However, you don't need to pay the ULEZ charge if you are parked inside the zone and don't drive.

The design and installation of the ULEZ expansion is a matter for TfL. Any queries related to ULEZ expansion need to be directed to TfL directly.

Find out how the ULEZ expansion may impact you on the TfL website.
