HGV levy reform options: environmental charging and liability changes for foreign vehicles

23 Jun 2022

Consultation – closes 18 July 2022

Proposes introducing a replacement HGV levy in which carbon dioxide emissions, estimated according to the weight of the vehicle, are taken into account.

Seeks views on the proposal to:

  • align the suspended HGV levy with the environmental performance of the vehicle, using the weight of the HGV to approximate the carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions of the vehicle
  • ensure that the levy liability is as closely aligned as possible to when a foreign vehicle is used on a major road

Also seeking opinions on whether the current structure of the levy, alternatively, should be retained.

The levy was suspended in August 2020 to support the haulage sector during the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
