North Ockendon

The approach to North Ockendon church is within London’s Ultra Low Emission Zone; see the Ultra Low Emission Zone website for more details. The website includes a vehicle checker where you can type in your registration number to check if your vehicle meets the emission standards.
If approaching from the B186, non-compliant vehicles may avoid the charge. However, we strongly recommend that you check the ULEZ website to see if you need to pay the charge within 3 days of your journey.
