Western Congestion Charge Cosultation
Transport for London (TfL) has begun a statutory public consultation on a number of proposed changes to London's Congestion Charge. If approved the last charging day for the Western Extension could be Christmas Eve, with other changes coming into effect on 4 January 2011. In the consultation the Mayor proposes that the last charging day for the Western Extension would be 24 December 2010. It would be suspended as normal over the festive period then from Tuesday 4 January the Congestion Charging zone will revert to substantially the same boundaries as existed prior to the Western Extension being added in 2007. Full story: http://www.tfl.gov.uk/corporate/media/newscentre/archive/15581.aspx Residents of the Kensal Triangle are just outside the zone as you know so abolition of the western extension would enable residents to travel without congestion charge to areas outside the original zone e.g. Ladbroke Grove, Notting Hill, Kensington High Street. The case for and against is widely documented but please state your view either way. And to register your views on the consultation: https://www.tfl.gov.uk/tfl/roadusers/congestioncharging/consultation/default.aspx Residents are urged to express their views before the deadline, 2nd August. Here is a leaflet from TFL which includes maps and the case for and against.
