Newham council is introducing a new parking permit based on your cars emission.

The new parking permit charges are aimed at lowering vehicle emissions by encouraging residents to switch towards less polluting vehicles, as well as considering taking more local trips by sustainable modes of transport like walking and cycling.

This is just a thinly veiled excuse to further squeez more money out of motorists. They also point out that the council has the worst pollution in the country, however fail to mention the council has an airport in the middle of residential built up area. 

The council think this will encourage residents to switch to less polluting cars, at the time most people are unsure if they'll have a job because of the lockdown. Newham is a low income area and a lot of the residents rely on their cars as their source of income. The council has already blocked many side roads at certain times of the day diverting traffic onto main roads and hence creating further traffic and pollution.

Please sign this petition to say enough is enough, we will not stand for further charges to motorists. Permits range from £60-200. Most residents will reluctantly pay this as they'll will not be able to afford a new low emission car. Remember this is a further charge on top of the ulez. Just when residents changed their vehicle's to ulez complaint cars, the council is now putting it's hands in your pocket to generate revenue.

Sign this petition to let the council know, enough is enough.
