Aims of the NRMM

Since 2008, heavy duty diesel road vehicles have had to meet emissions standards for PM to avoid being charged for travelling within the London Low Emission Zone (LEZ).The Mayor has recently announced his intention to introduce an ultra low emission zone in central London from 2020. This will require all vehicles to be either zero or ultra low emission. 

It is also important to take action to reduce emissions from non-road mobile machinery (NRMM) to protect and improve Londoners™ health.  The latest version of the London Atmospheric Emissions Inventory estimates that in 2010 the NRMM used on construction sites was responsible for 12% of NOx emissions and 15% of PM10 emissions in Greater London.

Map of the NRMM LEZ

This map shows the area of the Non-Road Mobile Machinery (NRMM) regulations will apply. These regulations are active from 1st September 2015.

There are two zones - Greater London (shown in blue), and the Central Activity Zone (CAZ) and Canary Wharf (shown in orange). The central London areas have a tighter emissions standard applied to them.

To use the interactive map you can select the layers using the control in the top right corner of the map. You can also enter an address or postcode to zoom in to and find out which of the emission standards you will need to comply with.
