The Ultra Low Emission Zone (ULEZ) expands across all of Greater London on August 29. 

It comes after the proposal faced mass debate by officials and local residents and even went to the High Court. 

The High Court ruling took place on July 28 and ruled that the ULEZ could lawfully expand to cover all of Greater London. 

London Mayor Sadiq Khan proposed the plans back in 2022, seeing drivers who don't meet the ULEZ standards pay a daily charge of £12.50 when in the zone.

ULEZ expansion 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 will cover all of Greater London to reduce the region's pollution levels from August 29.

Areas including South East London like Bexley, Bromley, Sidcup, Croydon, Enfield, Harrow, Wembley, Romford and more will be affected. 

Below, you see the proposed map, with the green areas showing the spots that 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. 

Those who do not meet the standards are 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.

What 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 worse. 

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.
