According to a front page article on this site, "As part of a range of parking permit charge increases Hounslow Council is planning to impose an additional 50 levy on most diesel cars in the borough." This proposed levy applies to CPZ area permits.

While I appreciate the "green" motives which might be behind this proposal (although realistically it is probably just another scheme for raising revenue from hapless motorists) it does seem a trifle ironic that a Labour council should penalise those who were conned/encouraged into buying a diesel vehicle by the previous Labour government. Go Diesel we were told - it's much more environmentally friendly. The least the council should do is to have a 10 year moratorium on such increases - not everyone can afford a new car - especially when they have bought a diesel in good faith thinking that they were being environmentally responsible. I got a diesel precisely because I believed the government propaganda. Luckily, I saw which way the wind was blowing and changed back to petrol last year - not everyone is in a financial position to be able to do that.
