Emissions based parking

Lead partner:

Westminster City Council

In July 2017, Westminster City Council introduced a 50% parking surcharge for diesel vehicles registered prior to 2015 paying to park in the area. A year on, the surcharge has seen a 16% decrease in these older vehicles paying to park in the area, with no obvious displacement to nearby zones. Since its introduction in the LEN in July 2017, nearby inner London boroughs including Camden, Islington, City of London and Southwark have also begun to adopt similar surcharge measures to nudge drivers in to behaviours which reduce harmful vehicle emissions.
