19th July - 17:00-19:00

MAYOR'S CONSULTATION ON AIR POLLUTION

The Mayor of London has recently launched a new public consultation on some measures to improve air quality in London. Some of these measures include bringing the implementation of the central London Ultra Low Emission Zone (ULEZ) forward by one year to 2019; expanding the ULEZ beyond central London in 2020;  introducing a new Emissions Surcharge from 2017 for the most polluting vehicles entering central London (find out more) or giving TfL the go-ahead to start looking at a diesel scrappage scheme as part of a wider national scheme run by the government.

WHAT IS THE WEBINAR ABOUT?

But what are the consequences of these measures to Londoners? How will they match London’s needs for cleaner air? What area (e.g. CCZ, inner, LEZ) of London should be covered by a ULEZ for heavy vehicles, if at all? To what extent do you agree that the government should fund a scrappage scheme for cars or vans? To what extent do you agree or disagree that a new Emissions Surcharge should be introduced to discourage the use of older, more polluting vehicles in central London?

During this webinar, together with Jennifer Brathwaite (Labour Councillor for Gipsy Hill Ward and Cabinet Member for Environment and Transport), Feryal Demirci (Labour Councillor for Hackney) and Samantha Heath (CEO London Sustainability Exchange) we will be discussing some of these questions.
