What has changed?

  • Lambeth no longer offers a 1 month permit. Residents may purchase 3 month, 6 month or 12 month permit.
  • We have introduced an administration fee for Band 1 permits to cover some of the costs associated with administering the permit scheme
  • Poor air quality is an issue in Lambeth. Band 6 vehicles will face larger increases to reflect their higher emissions.
  • A discount for properties inside the congestion charge zone no longer applies. All permit prices are now solely based on vehicle emissions.
  • An additional charge is proposed to be introduced later in 2017 for diesel vehicles that do not meet Euro 6 Emission Standards
