    As many of you know, our motorhome non LEZ compliant from October this year (2010)

    Although the scheme is currently under suspension be aware this is due to change over the next month.

    The UK are pushing for the scheme to be suspended a further 2 years until 2012 however no decision on this has been made.

    I have today spoken to Transport for London who are responsible for operating the LEZ scheme.

    I was told that a FORMAL decision will be announced in May and to go by the LEZ compliance checker as the correct source of information.

    If the suspension until 2012 is NOT granted, this means that owners of diesel motorhomes that are showing as non compliant on the LEZ compliance checker (and either live with the LEZ or are visiting within the LEZ area) will need to book their vehicle into a VOSA site for specialist compliance testing.


    If the motorhome passes the testing an exemption certificate will be issued.

    If the motorhome fails the testing VOSA staff are apparently able to give expert advice on how to ensure the motorhome can be altered to ensure it is complaint.

    You can find all the information here :- http://www.tfl.gov.uk/roadusers/lez/default.aspx

    Good luck all whose vehicles are showing as non compliant from 4 October 2010

    don't follow what you are talking about
    the official website confirms the suspension of this regulation until 2012

    btw , if you modify your vehicle to conform [ unless with an engine change ] you will be subject to an annual test

    Just to update.

    At the moment there is confusion at TFL with two different versions being given, so at the moment Les just to confuse things we are both right

    This is currently being escalated to their Head of Operations for clarification.

    They hope to give me a definitive answer within the next 24 hours.

    I have now had a return telephone call from Colvin on extn 2580.

    There is another consultation going through at the moment. The results will be published on the LEZ website in May giving the public an opportunity to comment.

    Once all of this is completed a final decision as to whether or not the LEZ for these vehicles is suspended until 2012 will be made and published.
