Hello,We want your views
We are writing to inform you about three new changes to parking charges being proposed as part of Lambeth Council's commitment to reaching Net Zero by 2030.
As someone who may be interested in these changes, we would like to ask your opinion.
The proposed changes include:
• extending emissions-based charging for motorcycle resident permits;
• extending the diesel surcharge to diesel vehicles that are Euro 6 compliant;
• introducing a surcharge for second and subsequent permits within the same household
Visit the consultation page to find out more and to give your feedback. You have until Friday, 23 February 2024.Why are we doing this?
Around a quarter of Lambeth's annual emissions are caused by vehicles, despite the borough having one of the lowest car ownership rates in London.
In the next six years, we need to reduce the amount of traffic on our streets by 27% and this will require a mixture of helping people switch to other forms of active travel, whilst also ensuring the price of kerbside parking reflects the impact the emissions have on our shared environment. This is in line with our kerbside strategyadopted in January 2023.
We believe these proposals will:
• Reduce parking pressures
• Relieve congestion
• Improve air quality by reducing carbon emissionsHave your say
We'd like to invite your views on these proposed changes so we're running a statutory consultation until Friday, 23 February 2024.
