FOI request detail

ULEZ planned changes to emmision standards

Request ID: FOI-1595-2122
Date published: 10 November 2021

You asked

I would like to request any information currently available on planned changes to the emmission standards of vehicles captured by ULEZ. Are changes planned so that the current Euro3,4 and 6 will no longer be exempt at any point in the future . What are the planned changes and in which year will they be introduced? This information is vitally inportant so that residents living within ULEZ can plan ahead if they will be forced to change the vehicles they currently drive. Not everyone can afford a £30000 electric car purchase on the spot. Neither can they afford to pay ULEZ charge when they need to use their car few times a week.
