ULEZ expansion - 29 August 2023

London's Ultra Low Emission Zone, or ULEZ, is expanding to encompass all of Greater London, including Heathrow Airport, from the 29 August 2023.


The initiative, implemented by Transport for London (TfL), is aimed at reducing air pollution in London, therefore all vehicles entering the airport must meet certain emissions standards in order to avoid paying a daily charge.


The daily charge for non-compliant vehicles is £12.50 for most vehicles, including cars, vans, and motorcycles.


The charge will be in addition to any other fees or charges associated with entering the airport. The charge only applies when a vehicle is driven within the ULEZ zone, and does not apply to stationary vehicles including when cars are parked at Heathrow.


Please note, if you have booked Meet & Greet or Valet Parking with a non-compliant vehicle, and have selected a different exit terminal to your entry terminal, you will be liable for payment of a ULEZ charge to transfer your vehicle to another terminal.

Noise and Airspace Community Forum

Noise and Airspace Community Forum

Heathrow's Noise and Airspace Community Forum (NACF) was established in 2022 and continues the work of the Heathrow Community Noise Forum (HCNF), which was set up in 2015 in response to local concerns regarding future changes to airspace as a result of the Government's airspace modernisation strategy. It is made up of representatives from local authorities around Heathrow, NATS, BA, DfT, CAA and Heathrow.


The purpose of the NACF is to:

  1. Engage with local authority and community representatives on issues related to noise, airspace and runway operations at Heathrow;

  2. Improve members’ understanding on issues related to these topics;

  3. Listen to the key concerns of communities living around the airport, providing them with an opportunity to have their say;

  4. Bring together industry, government and regulator, local authority and community representatives in one place to allow for an open dialogue with key stakeholders.
