The Mayor of London has launched a scrappage scheme to help tackle London’s air quality crisis.
You can claim up to £3,000 off your newer vehicle if your vehicle doesn’t meet the new, stricter Ultra Low Emission Zone standards you will need to pay a daily charge to drive within the zone.Under the scrappage scheme, eligible micro businesses, sole traders and charities can apply for funds to scrap older, more polluting vans and charity minibuses and switch to cleaner vehicles.
The Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, said: “To get a grip on London’s lethal air and protect public health we need to rid our streets of the most polluting vehicles. With six weeks to go until the Ultra Low Emission Zone starts in central London many Londoners are looking at ways to change to cleaner transport options.
“Motorists need our help and support to take positive action, and I am proud to today open this £23 million scrappage scheme today to help enable microbusinesses and charities to scrap polluting vans and minibuses, and switch to cleaner vehicles. The van scrappage scheme will be followed later this year with a £25 million fund to help lower-income households scrap polluting cars.
