Warning period for non-H&F drivers ends in Clean Air Neighbourhood trial
Non-H&F drivers who pass through the cameras in the side streets off Wandsworth Bridge Road and who do not have exemptions will now be fined.
It comes as the two-month warning period for out-of-borough drivers cutting through South Fulham’s streets in our Clean Air Neighbourhood trial ended on Tuesday 31 January.
We do not want to fine motorists. We want to reduce pollution and congestion. That is why we ran an extended two-month warning period from 1 December to 31 January, during which out-of-borough drivers got a warning notice and a letter explaining the clean air trial – not a fine.
Please look out for the signs and avoid using the residential streets off Wandsworth Bridge Road as cut-throughs.
Visitors and shoppers can still reach every street
The aim of Clean Air Neighbourhoods is to clean the air by discouraging out-of-borough motorists from using our residential streets as a shortcut – but not to discourage visitors for residents.
Importantly, all visitors – friends, family, carers, deliveries and tradespeople – can still reach every street in the Clean Air Neighbourhood without going through the cameras.
They just need to enter and leave the area via Wandsworth Bridge Road or enter and leave via New Kings Road. See the map at the bottom of this page.
Shopper parking is conveniently located close to or on the high streets and can be easily accessed without going through cameras.
Penalty Charge Notices (PCNs) will only be issued to out-of-borough drivers who pass through the cameras as they cut through from Wandsworth Bridge Road to New Kings Road, and vice versa.
Booking free access for visitors
Residents can book friends, family, carers, deliveries and tradespeople free access through the cameras by using RingGo via its app or online.
They can do this even after the visitor has left up to midnight on the same day (so if they have gone through a camera by mistake as part of a visit, they won’t be fined).
For those who have problems using smartphones or laptops, we have set up a Clean Air Neighbourhood hotline 020 8753 3849. For full details go to our Clean Air Neighbourhoods webpage here.
Tackling toxic air
We are really grateful for your co-operation as we tackle the pollution and congestion that fuels toxic air in the borough.
As with all new traffic schemes, this will take a while to bed down but we are confident it will reduce pollution and congestion in the area.
If you do receive a fine and believe it has been wrongly issued, please call our Clean Air Neighbourhood hotline on 020 8753 3849.
