- New £23m scrappage scheme for vans to prepare for ULEZ [Commercial Fleet - 18/12/2018]
What we know so far
An Ultra Low Emission Zone (ULEZ) will be in place in central London from 8 April 2019. Most vehicles will need to meet new, tighter exhaust emission standards (ULEZ standards) or pay a daily charge to travel within the area of the ULEZ.
The ULEZ will replace the T-Charge. It will operate 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, every day of the year within the same area as the current Congestion Charging Zone (CCZ).
From 26 October 2020, the ULEZ zone will be expanded to Greater London for HGVs. HGVs that are Euro 3 or older will be charged £300 per day, while those that are Euro 4 or Euro 5 will be charged £100 per day.
Large vans not meeting Euro 3 will be charged £100 per day.
Vehicles that meet the current LEZ standards may not necessarily meet the new ULEZ standards. More information can be found here.
