ULEZ expansion: Judicial review to be held over plans

News / Wed 12th Apr 2023 at 04:42pm

A JUDICIAL review is to be held into Sadiq Khan’s plans to expand the Ultra Low Emission Zone (ULEZ) across London reports the BBC.

Five Conservative-led councils – Bexley, Bromley, Harrow, Hillingdon and Surrey – launched legal action over the expanded scheme which is due to begin at the end of August.

The High Court has granted for the case to proceed on two out of five grounds of their appeal.

The mayor’s office said the expansion plans would continue “without delay”.

A spokesperson for Mr Khan said the mayor was “pleased to see the court has refused permission for the majority of the grounds”.

“We will continue to robustly defend his life-saving decision to expand the ULEZ and continue with preparations without delay.”

Hopefully, the High Court will uphold the appeal of these councils against this new Khan money grabbing stealth tax.

In my opinion,due to the mayor of London, Sadiq Khan bringing in a charge to drive inside the M25, anyone who lives in any of the Home counties which one of them is Essex, should have the right to vote in the future London mayor elections because not every area inside the M25 is part of London. So if he is going to bring us residents who live in the home counties into his policies then we should have the right to vote in the future London mayor elections

What on earth does this have to do with Harlow

Eric. What goes on in the capital city of the UK, which is London, has a big impact on the rest of country, especially the home counties of London, which excludes Essex, which Harlow is part of.

I have an air quality meter( reads PM 2.5 aswell as other data)and the data I have recorded does not correlate with TFL’s data. I put in a FOI request to TFL as to where they get their data from. Turns out they take 3 readings( Heathrow airport and 2 locations in central london) and feed it into a computer model. Climate computer models are very unreliable due to the fact we do not properly understand all the variables that effect climate. So the whole expansion is based on politics not science. Sadiq claims it’s all about air quality, but from the PM2.5 readings I take, the air quality inside our homes is far worse than outside our homes. For example I live next to a busy road and I have rarely seen a reading above 10-15(this is very low) outside my house, yet in the house the readings often set warning alarms off when cooking and cleaning or running a tumble dryer.(readings above 250). Climate change is a serious matter, and schemes like this will just make people angry and turn them off from the subject.
