    On another thread I noticed a mention of not using Crystal Palace CC site again because it is inside the LEZ.

    We had a night at the end of August at the Lee Valley Campsite at Sewardstone on the eastern side of the Lee Valley reservoirs, a few miles south of Waltham Abbey and the M25. It's not quite up to CC standards but pretty good and a viable alternative for people who are faced with the daily charge if venturing into the LEZ.

    Be careful, though, not to confuse it with the Camping & Caravan Park in Edmonton on the western side of the Lee Valley reservoirs, as that site is inside the LEZ.

    My reading of the regulations booklet indicated that for our motorhome anyway (3.5T), the LEZ was not yet in operation.

    Correct, it's being phased in.

    Currently only vehicles over 3.5T GVW are affected, 4th October 2010 is the date for vehicles between 2.5 and 3.5T GVW.

    There are plenty of members of this forum, though, that have vehicles of more than 3.5T GVW.
