The London congestion charging scheme is the responsibility of the Mayor, not the Government. The Department has regular meetings with a range of businesses and business groups interested in the western extension of congestion charging. The Mayor has revised his Transport Strategy to allow for a western extension of the central London congestion charging zone. A full 12-week public consultation on the extension was launched on 6 May. Any proposal for a further extension to the scheme is a matter for the Mayor.
