We answered

Our ref: FOI-0371-2021/GH

Thank you for your request received by Transport for London (TfL) on 11 June 2020 asking for information about Congestion Charging.

Your request has been considered under the requirements of the Freedom of Information Act 2000 and our information access policy.

I can confirm that we do hold the information you require. However, we cannot supply the list of postcodes as requested because this is commercially available data owned by Royal Mail and available from various data suppliers. This information is therefore subject to a statutory exemption to the right of access to information under section 43(2).

You can find out if a particular postcode is in the charging zone by using the website and the link below:

Alternatively if you wish to separately obtain postcode databases you can download the GIS data for the scheme boundaries from which you can derive the appropriate postcode list.

If this is not the information you are looking for, or if you are unable to access it for some reason, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Please note, the Government has announced a series of measures to tackle the coronavirus. It is essential for London, that we continue to provide a safe transport network for essential journeys.

In current circumstances, we are not able to answer FOI requests readily and we ask that you please do not make a request to us at present.

Answering FOI requests will require the use of limited resources and the attention of staff who could be supporting other essential activity. In any event, please note that our response time will be affected by the current situation.

If you are not satisfied with this response please see the attached information sheet for details of your right to appeal.

Yours sincerely
