CLEAN AIR ZONES

15 Oct 2020

On 15th March 2021, Bath & North East Somerset will become the first local authority to implement a statutory Clean Air Zone.

 

The zone will be a Class C CAZ that will cover the centre of Bath.  Private cars and motorcycles will not be charged, and other vehicles will only be charged if they exceed the specified emission standards.  For Buses & Coaches the minimum standard is EURO VI.

 

Birmingham will follow as the second city to introduce a charging Clean Air Zone on 1 June 2021

The zone will be a small Class D CAZ covering the centre of the city.  The zone will cover all roads within the A4540 Middleway Ring Road and will operate 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

 

The charges for vehicles which do not meet the emission standard will be:

•            Cars and LGVs £8 per day

•            Coaches and HGVs £50 per day

 

Leeds CAZ is expected to follow in early 2021.

 

The Government website to check charges that may apply to drive in a Clean Air Zone can be used to check vehicle compliance:
