New houses and office buildings in some areas of London can no longer be equipped with parking lots. The corresponding ban was issued by the mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, who thus takes care of the environment. It should be noted that this initiative arose as an element of the new transport strategy of the capital of Great Britain.
As part of this document, it will be prohibited to create parking spaces as part of residential complexes that are located near busy traffic interchanges. Similarly, parking spaces near new offices in the city center will be banned. The ban on parking is the latest step in a series of measures to improve air quality. It should be recalled that previously the municipality introduced a separate toxicity tax, which is charged at a rate of 10 pounds from each car, the engine of which does not meet the requirements of the Euro 4 standard.
