How will TfL’s feasibility study measure the economic impact of a Greater London Boundary Charge?

I have asked TfL to undertake a feasibility study into a potential Greater London Boundary Charge for non-residents. Part of this work will be an initial assessment of the potential economic impacts of such a charge. TfL have been engaging with a range of stakeholders to help identify these impacts.

If, having reviewed the study, I ask TfL to progress the development of scheme options, there would be an assessment of these options from an economic perspective, including for example, the impacts on access to work, and the potential impact on commercial vehicles and town centres.
