Clean Air Zone

The full details of the Clean Air Zone plans have now been revealed and are set to include a small city centre charging zone (small CAZ D), applicable to non-compliant private vehicles, which will be charged £9 per day, as well as non-compliant buses, coaches, taxis and LGVs. The cost for larger vehicles will be £100 per day.

– Charges would not apply to Euro 4, 5 and 6 petrol vehicles
(roughly 2006 onwards)
– Charges would not apply to Euro 6 diesel vehicles
(roughly end of 2015 onwards)

The plans have been sent to Government’s Joint Air Quality Unit for approval. Bristol City Council have confirmed the zone will be launched in summer 2022 with a strengthened package of support to help residents and businesses adapt to the changes to tackle pollution in the city.

Please visit the Clean Air Zone website for all information, including the Small CAZ D boundary map.
