Back in March, London Mayor Sadiq Khan announced the proposed plan to expand the Ultra-Low Emission Zone (ULEZ) to cover all of Greater London. 

With consultations now underway to further discuss the proposal, the plan could be passed and start on August 29, 2023.  

This would see the zone expanded to cover the same area of the Low Emission Zone, with drivers that don't meet the ULEZ standards set to pay a daily charge of £12.50 when in the zone. 

The charge will also include residents within ULEZ, but they will not need to pay the daily charge if parked inside the zone and don't drive. 

Ahead of the results from the consultations, we've looked into where the expansion could cover across London.

ULEZ Area Map: Where will it cover?

Currently, the ULEZ covers central London including the City of Westminster and Soho.

It was then later expanded to cover much more of the capital including, Greenwich, Hammersmith, Wood Green, Stratford, and more. 

But now the expansion proposes to cover all of Greater London in order to reduce the region's pollution levels. 

Seeing areas including all of South East London like Bexley, Bromley, Sidcup as well as Croydon, Enfield, Harrow, Wembley, Romford and more affected. 

Below, you see the proposed map, with the green areas showing the spots which are part of the expansion.

What is the ULEZ expansion? 

The ULEZ expansion is an area in London where it is required to pay a charge for driving in a vehicle that does not comply with minimum emissions standards. 

With those that do not meet the standards then charged a daily fee of £12.50 for entering the area.

Whether or not a vehicle is liable for the charge depends on how much nitrogen dioxide (NO2) it emits.

Which cars are ULEZ compliant?

Whether or not a vehicle is liable for the charge depends on how much nitrogen dioxide (NO2) it emits.

The change comes as NO2 can damage the lungs and make existing conditions such as asthma and lung and heart disease much worst. 

In order for diesel cars to avoid the charge they must generally have been registered after September 2015, whilst most petrol models registered from 2005 are also exempt.
