Writing for local website Greenwich.co.uk, Labour’s parliamentary candidate for Greenwich and Woolwich Matthew Pennycook has called for Boris Johnson to improve his limited plans for an Ultra Low Emissions Zone (ULEZ), stating that the plans 'suffer from a distinct lack of ambition'. While supporting the principle behind the ULEZ, Pennycook points out that the Mayor’s scheme will not go far enough to ensure that the ULEZ works for residents of Greenwich and Woolwich. The article cites industry reports that reveal the proposed emissions standards to be inadequate, while also drawing attention to the restricted zone boundary, which will exclude local areas of concern such as the Woolwich Road flyover.
