Our Ref:         FOI-0484-2324

Thank you for your request received on 18 May 2023 asking for information about the Ultra Low Emission Zone (ULEZ) expansion.

Your request has been considered in accordance with the requirements of the Environmental Information Regulations (EIRs) and our information access policy. I can confirm that we do hold some of the information you require.

Unfortunately, we are currently unable to provide the information requested as TfL has recently received representations from a third party, which TfL is considering, that disclosure of this information would adversely affect their rights and that relevant exemptions to disclosure under the EIRs apply. The third party has alleged that the requested information would be exempt from disclosure under Regulation 12(5)(c) of the EIRs. TfL has, therefore, provisionally exempted the requested information from disclosure on that basis until the consideration of this matter is concluded.

We recognise the inherent public interest in transparency by public authorities, particularly as the ULEZ expansion is a complex issue which is subject to wider discussion and debate. However, at this moment in time, TfL must complete its consideration of this matter before it can put the requested information into the public domain.

On balance we believe that there is a greater public interest in allowing us time to complete our consideration of these issues. We will provide you with further details regarding TfL’s decision once that process is complete.

Please note, there is some information published on our website about how we calculate compliance: https://tfl.gov.uk/modes/driving/ultra-low-emission-zone/ulez-compliance-data.

Please see the attached information sheet for details of your right to appeal.

Yours sincerely
