Air Quality Marylebone - Diesel based parking surcharge for visiting vehicles

Westminster City Council is set to trial emissions-based charging for visiting diesel vehicles parking within Marylebone parking Zone F

In a pilot programme to be introduced by the Council from 3 April 2017, the charge for pay-to-park bays during normal parking hours will be raised specifically within F zone for diesel cars, some of the heaviest of polluting vehicles. This will apply to visitors into Marylebone, with resident permits remaining unchanged.   

The surcharge will add 50% to the current rate of £4.90 per hour in F Zone. Customers are currently able to Park and Pay per minute up to a maximum of 240 minutes (4 hours), meaning charges will be 8p per minute in real terms and 12p per minute for diesels.

Marylebone suffers some of the highest pollution levels in London, given the area’s location, mix of land uses, building density and type, and number of vehicle trips. A “polluter pays” principle will have the aim of reducing harmful vehicle emissions in Marylebone and any money raised will be spent on initiatives to promote sustainable transport.

No changes to Residents Parking Permit costs at the moment. However the Marylebone Association suggests residents also think carefully if they are planning on replacing their vehicles, as the days of diesel cars in cities are clearly numbered! It is possibly only a matter of time before residents parking permits also have a surcharge for diesel.
