Transport for London Confirm Ultra Low Emission Zone is not a Blanket Ban

Following representations from the Federation of British Historic Vehicle Clubs (FBHVC), Transport for London (TfL) have confirmed that it is not their intention to introduce the Ultra Low Emission Zone (ULEZ) for inner London on a universal basis and that, as with its predecessor, Low Emission Zone there would be exemptions.

Further TfL confirmed it would be consulting on the details of such exemptions and has added FBHVC to its stakeholder list confirming that it recognises the claim of historic vehicle owners for exemption from ULEZ.

As the body responsible for safeguarding historic vehicle owners' right to use their vehicles on the public highway, FBHVC now looks forward to taking its case for exemption before TfL.

This important clarification from Tfl and its inclusion of FBHVC on its list of stakeholder consultees, will re-assure the historic vehicle movement which has been alarmed by scare stories in the media suggesting that events like the annual London – Brighton Veteran Car Run might be under threat.
