Following the high court dismissal of a legal challenge by a coalition of five councils against the expansion of London’s ultra-low emission zone, the proposed roll-out will go ahead as planned on 29th August 2023.  The Mayor has increased the scrappage scheme as follows:

  • Scrappage grants of up to £2,000 will be available to every single Londoner with a non-compliant car or motorcycle
  • Scrappage payment for vans will increase from £5,000 to £7,000. Small businesses and sole traders will be able to scrap three vans or minibuses in addition to increasing retrofit payments from £5,000 to £6,000.

Additional support will also be available to charities with increased payments available for minibuses from £7,000 to £9,000, and disabled Londoners will see wheelchair adapted vehicle grants double  Click here to find out if your vehicle is compliant.
