Porsche to request for judicial review

Ken_livingstonetom_ocallaghan Porsche has announced it will make formal application for judicial review to challenge the new congestion charge scheme.

Porsche will file a request for judicial review after TfL and Ken Livingstone (pictured) have rejected the carmaker’s request to change the new congestion charge due to apply next October.

After Porsche files the request, The Mayor will then have 21 days to acknowledge the Porsche claim.

Responding to the Mayor’s decision, Andy Goss, Managing Director of Porsche Cars GB, said: “The new £25 charge will have no meaningful impact on congestion and TfL’s own figures show the anticipated CO2 emissions savings in a year could be equivalent to less than four hours of emissions from Heathrow.  All it will do is unfairly hit large numbers of drivers in London and undermine London’s attractiveness as a place to do business.  We are therefore formally applying for judicial review to challenge the Mayor’s proposals and we are confident we have a strong case.”
