Lucian Ivan Managing Director of Spectrum Window Cleaning, One of London’s leading commercial window cleaning firms, was last week interviewed live-on air by LBC Radio by Susan Bookbinder, about his thoughts on London Mayor, Boris Johnson’s, plans to introduce legislation making London an Ultra Low Emission Zone by 2020, raising the possibility that motorcycles (and any other vehicle which are not zero/low-emission) could be shut out of the city.

The plans are likely to prove a challenge for many businesses, but Spectrum Window Cleaning are confident of the opportunity and the benefits.

The new plans to create an Ultra Low Emission Zone is likely to hit small businesses who regularly require frequent access to the Capital’s inner roads. With limited parking availability, high parking charges and over zealous parking wardens, working in Central London is already difficult.

The new proposed changes would make it even more difficult for many small businesses who service clients in the City. However, proposals by City Hall to prevent access to all non-green vehicles by 2020, could make it a bit easier for businesses who choose to run green vehicles.

The challenge for many would be tapping into the opportunity from the legislation because they are constrained by the capital investment required, in what many still see as an immature and expensive technology.

Lucian Ivan, However is not perturbed, he goes on to comment; “These proposed changes by Boris Johnson, are designed to make the Capital a cleaner, and better place to work and live for all concerned”. Lucian continues to add; “We believe in using the latest equipment and technology, and we feel it is important to keep ahead and this possible legislation will make us think about the investment of new green vehicles in future”.

The proposed changes by the Major of London, whilst hard for some, does also present a benefit and a solid business case for investment in new greener vehicle, which may allow businesses to make savings in both congestion charging fees incurred and petrol consumption by using hybrid vehicles.
