Proposals for re-zoning stations in the TfL zonal structure can only be made by signatories of the London Travelcard Agreement (either train operators or Transport for London) andmust have the support of the Travelcard Scheme Council (which is made up of the train operators who are party to the Travelcard Agreement). Approval by the Secretary of State for Transport would also be required before an amendment to the zonal map can be made.
