The ULEZ widening must not undermine London businesses

Friday 25 November 2022

James Watkins, Head of Policy and Public Impact of London Chamber of Commerce and Industry (LCCI) said
“LCCI’s latest London Business 1000 report found that more London businesses support steps to reduce air pollution in our capital than those who oppose it. However, the timing of the expansion to ULEZ is critical to the success of the scheme.

While we welcome the announcement of the new scrappage scheme, which will provide grants to successful applicants to scrap or retrofit their older vehicles and replace them with cleaner modes of transport, businesses across London have been given less than 10 months to make necessary arrangements. The time and monetary pressures of acquiring compliant vehicles will add unnecessary stress in these already difficult economic circumstances.

Due to the scale and scope of the ULEZ expansion in 2023, we ask that the Mayor communicates clearly and constantly with London’s business community and ensures that the scrappage scheme is widely available and sufficiently resourceful to help London businesses transition to a greener future.”
