Sadiq Khan's plan to introduce a daily boundary charge up to £5.50 for drivers entering Greater London will hurt Bexley and Bromley, warns Peter Fortune.
The Mayor's proposed boundary charge would penalise people for driving into the capital to shop, work and visit friends and family.
Peter Fortune, who is standing to be the next Conservative London Assembly Member for Bexley and Bromley, is calling on Khan to scrap his boundary charge proposal.
"Make no mistake, Sadiq Khan's boundary charge is a tax on Outer London," warned Cllr Fortune.
"Instead of cutting Transport for London's bonuses, gold-plated pensions and his press team, Khan is proposing a tax which would hammer Bexley and Bromley.
"Bexley and Bromley are deeply connected to neighbouring Dartford, Sevenoaks, Surrey and Kent. Every day, people drive into the two boroughs to work in our public services, shop in our high streets, and visit friends and family. Khan's boundary charge would tax those ties.
"Together with Shaun Bailey, I will fight this ludicrous charge which would hurt our small businesses and put a wall around Bexley and Bromley, separating us from our closest neighbours."
