Removal of the Western Extension and introduction of Congestion Charging Auto Pay ("CC Auto Pay") removes Congestion Charge Penalty Charge Notice problems.
From the end of the charging day on 24th December 2010 the Congestion Charging zone will be smaller.
The Western Extension will be removed from the charging zone and you will no longer have to pay the charge if you drive in this area.
There is no cost for driving on the boundary roads surrounding the zone, and the hours of operation aren't changing. There is also no cost between 25 December 2010 and 3 January 2011 inclusive.
If motorists live in the Western Extension Zone and you at present get the residents' discount, you will no longer be eligible to receive it. From 4 January 2011, you will need to pay the full daily charge if you wish to drive within the congestion charging zone, during charging hours.
Congestion Charge Increases
From 4th January 2011, the daily Congestion Charge is:
£10 if paid in advance or on the day of travel
£12 if paid by midnight the charging day after travel
£9 if registered for Congestion Charging Auto Pay ("CC Autopay")
Residents registered with Congestion Charge London for the 90 per cent discount
If registered for CC Auto Pay
* 90p daily charge
If paying by other methods:
£5 weekly (5 consecutive charging days)
£20 monthly (20 consecutive charging days)
£252 annual (252 consecutive charging days)
The lowest number of vehicles a fleet can register for inclusion in the Fleet Auto Pay Scheme has been reduced from 10 to 6.
If registered for Fleet Auto Pay: £9 daily charge
If paying by other methods: £10 daily charge
Removal of monthly and annual discounted charges
You are no longer able to purchase discounted monthly and annual charges. With new CC Auto Pay, you will only pay for the days that you drive within the charging zone.
Congestion Charging Auto Pay ("CC Auto Pay")
Congestion Charging Auto Pay ("CC Auto Pay") is an automated payment system which will be introduced from 4 January 2011. You can pre-register online from 22 November 2010.
It automatically records the number of charging days a vehicle travels within the charging zone each month and takes the charge from a registered debit or credit card on a monthly basis.
You can nominate up to five vehicles for each CC Auto Pay account and drivers of these vehicles pay a reduced £9 daily charge.
Because the payment is automated, account holders will no longer run the risk of getting any Congestion Charge Penalty Charge Notices for vehicles registered to your CC Auto Pay account, as long as it remains active.
An annual £10 registration charge per vehicle applies to sign up to CC Auto Pay.
To pre-register for CC Auto Pay, you must first register with TFL/Congestion Charge London for Congestion Charging.
