Proposed changes to parking permits and charges

The COVID-19 pandemic has laid bare the importance of our respiratory health. In Camden, we want to make sure that no one experiences poor health as a result of the air they breathe.

We are committed to responding to the Climate Emergency with ambitious measures that reduce carbon emissions.

We know that clean air is one of our residents’ top priorities – it is why we were the first London borough to commit to World Health Organization guidelines for air quality by 2030.

We have also set a number of clean air and climate change actions as part of our Transport Strategy and Climate Action Plan, with the goal of becoming a zero-carbon borough by 2030.

One way we plan to reduce pollution and improve local air quality, is to reduce the number of high carbon emission and diesel vehicles in the borough and to encourage residents to use more sustainable ways of travel.

We are proposing to increase the additional charge for diesel vehicles, as well as making changes to paid-for parking charges, car clubs and doctors’ permit prices including the introduction of emissions-based charging levels.

We are also proposing amending motorcycle parking charges, including charging for solo motorcycle bays for the first time in Camden. We anticipate these proposed changes will help improve the air quality in Camden by reducing vehicle emissions, and contribute towards our climate goals, discouraging inessential car use and encouraging people to seek out more sustainable modes of transport when getting around or visiting the borough.
