Petition Amend the 1999 GLA Act to remove the Mayor's power to impose road use charges
The Mayor's proposed extension of ULEZ over a short timeframe could negatively impact millions of people and businesses across SE England.
We believe the powers granted under the Greater London Authority Act 1999 are far too great for a Mayor to wield.
The ULEZ expansion could cause harm to millions of people’s lives, work and businesses.
We believe that:
- the short timeframe for expanding the ULEZ has not allowed enough time for people to avoid this charge.
- there is no adequate democratic accountability as the measure affects millions who have no vote in London Mayoral Elections
- turnout at local elections is too low to provide democratic accountability.
The country's roads should be available without favour to all users of lawfully licensed vehicles.
