ULEZ Expansion: Harrow Council write joint statement with Hillingdon, Bexley and Bromley

Harrow Council have written a joint statement with the boroughs of Bexley, Bromley and Hillingdon concerning the ULEZ expansion across London.

The controversial expansion is set to go London-wide from August this year, including the borough of Harrow, with many anticipating negative effects for businesses and residents across the capital.

The joint statement reads: “The London boroughs of Hillingdon, Bexley, Bromley and Harrow have this week written to the Mayor of London raising serious concerns around his ULEZ expansion plans and the adverse effects this will have on our residents, businesses and visitors to outer London.

“Our growing coalition of London councils are not satisfied with the justification for the expansion and remain strongly opposed to it. Until we have seen compelling evidence to the contrary, it remains our position that this scheme will not translate successfully to outer London and the negative impact to local households and economies will far outweigh the negligible air quality benefits.”
