IT IS another case of d�j� vu for opponents of the Congestion Charge zone's western extension.

Bureaucracy rules mean that people will have to speak up yet again if they want it scrapped by Christmas.

Plans to remove the extension, which has been described as 'west London's invisible Berlin wall' for cutting off London's businesses from its customers, were originally proposed by London Mayor, Boris Johnson in December 2008.

After two waves of people saying a firm no to the extension, the third and final stage has finally materialised. If proposals are passed, the last charging day will be Christmas Eve.

The West London Residents' Association is encouraging people to voice their concerns.

Chairman Gordon Taylor said: "We know that the overwhelming majority of our 14,000 members want the extension scrapped as soon as possible but if people don't fill out this final consultation there may be a small risk that the WEZ might not go."
