Emission-based parking fee application has started in the Lambeth region of London, the capital of England.
Vehicles that pollute the environment will now pay higher prices.
The application is planned to be implemented in other regions as well.
Lambeth now has 26 different fare bands for parking a car. This difference varies depending on the tax band and whether there is a diesel surcharge or not.
The cost of a parking space near Waterloo station in south London currently ranges from £6.30 to £13.23 an hour.
The consultation on fees, launched on May 30, includes a new pricing structure for residents’ parking permits, which are currently based on CO2 emissions.
The annual cost of the highest band has increased from £340.73 to £500, with an annual surcharge of £140 for a diesel vehicle that does not meet Euro 6 emissions standards.
Lambeth implemented changes despite opposition, noting that air quality is a major public health concern and that a wide variety of interventions are needed.
