Everyone is in favour of cleaner air in London. However, when the expansion of the ULEZ was announced it was initially proposed that residents in London would benefit from a "sunset" period giving them until September 2023 to change their car.

The Mayor freely admitted on the 5th April 2019, that an awareness campaign had only been running for six months*, demonstrating he knows many Londoners are not aware of the plans to expand the ULEZ.

However on the 8th of February 2019, the Mayor stated that the reason for not providing a grace period to London residents was because the "expansion takes place over three years after my [original] decision, which I consider sufficient notice for residents."**

It is clear that Londoners are only now realising the impact the ULEZ will have on them, and two years (until October 2021) is not enough time for Londoners to adequately budget to replace their cars with cleaner alternatives.

The consultation for the expansion of the ULEZ was one of the biggest attended, however given most residents have only recently become aware of the expansion (following the Mayors own awareness campaign) I assert that residents of London need more time to adjust without being unfairly financially penalised.

Sign this petition if you would like to see a 100% discount grace period introduced until September 2023.
