SPEAK UP: Survey launched to determine impact of ULEZ expansion on Northwood residents

 Published on: 11th March 2023   |   By: Holly Bullen   |   Category: Uncategorized

Northwood residents are being asked to provide feedback on how the expansion of the Ultra Low Emission Zone (ULEZ) would affect them.

The Mayor of London Sadiq Khan has announced that from August 29, drivers of cars that fail to meet emission and safety standards set by Transport for London will have to pay a £12.50 fee per day to enter the Greater London Authority boundary.

Hillingdon Council has launched a survey to measure the potential impact the expansion could have on local residents and businesses.

Councillor Douglas Mills, Hillingdon Council’s cabinet member for corporate services, said: “The proposed ULEZ expansion stands to affect people across the borough, from those who need their car to commute, do the school run or visit loved ones, to traders who rely on a vehicle for their business.

“To help us measure the probable impact of the expansion, we’re urging residents to take part in our anonymous survey and share their situation.”

This follows an announcement that Hillingdon Council had launched a Judicial Review alongside Bexley, Bromley and Harrow councils to challenge the decision to expand ULEZ.

The survey will run until Sunday, April 16. To take part, visit

A spokesperson for the Mayor of London said: “The Mayor has been clear that the decision to expand ULEZ London-wide was not easy, but necessary.

“According to the World Health Organization, every outer London borough exceeds the safe limit for toxic air particles. This includes Hillingdon, where up to 155 people are estimated to lose their lives early each year because of conditions linked to air pollution. Air pollution is also permanently stunting the lungs of children across London.

“The Mayor has listened to Londoners throughout this process, which is why he’s announced the biggest scrappage scheme yet – £110million – to help the Londoners who need it most.

“The ULEZ has been proven to work – reducing air pollution by nearly half in central London.”
