ZEZs can help improve local air quality while encouraging a switch to zero-emission vehicles, walking, cycling and public transport use. This will help to support the Mayor's goal that by 2050 London will become a zero-carbon city.
The Mayor's commitment to supporting boroughs to introduce ZEZs is set out in policies 5 and 7 and proposals 21 and 35 in the Mayor's Transport Strategy.
We have published guidance for boroughs looking to introduce local ZEZs based around two approaches: Healthy Streets or local air quality hotspots.
Contact the Local Communities & Partnerships officer for your area for more information on how we can help you plan ZEZs in your borough.
