The concession package agreed by the mayor includes:
of experts appointed jointly by the mayor and assembly.
- The panel in particular to look at the range of exemptions and whether
these should be changed in the interests of fairness or of London's
- A commitment that the scheme be suspended if, in the opinion of this
panel, it fails to meet its objectives or causes significant disruption
to London's environment or economy.
The group has secured an agreement with mayor to make a commitment in principle to use revenues to complement the scheme so that they tie-in more closely with the benefits of the congestion charge - such as:
The implementation of parking controls in areas, including outer London that is adversely affected by the scheme; investment at transport interchanges and the integration of London's rail services into London's transport system; the implementation of congestion relief schemes on missing links on the London road network and the introduction of other initiatives to promote public transport and encourage thoughtful car-use.
