The Ultra Low Emission Zone (ULEZ) is expanding across all London boroughs from 29 August 2023.
The impact this is likely to have on Kingston Town Centre has been on everyone’s minds, but the evidence we have gathered suggests that it is likely to be limited for most.
In July we carried out our bi-annual visitor research, talking to nearly 1300 visitors and non-visitors of Kingston Town Centre. 23% usually visit by car, but when asked whether their behaviour would change following the introduction of ULEZ only 2% of all visitors said they will visit less frequently, and 1% of all visitors said they will no longer visit Kingston.
Different businesses will of course be affected differently according to the demographics of their customer base. Please do let us know your experiences following the introduction of ULEZ and we can feed this back to the council. We can also help you expand your customer base using our visitor marketing channels, contact us to find out more.
