Bristol City Council have announced Bristol’s Clean Air Zone will launch in summer 2022, following Government confirming an investment of £42m in Bristol’s clean air plans to help residents and businesses adapt to the changes to tackle pollution in the city.
The announcement is available HERE.
Funding will go towards greener transport of goods, free bus tickets, cycle training and loans or grants to help people and businesses upgrade their vehicles. Bristol City Council estimate 71% of vehicles already meet the zone’s emissions standards, only older and more polluting vehicles will be charged.
Check your vehicle HERE.
If you would like to know more about the scheme and its impact on the area as a whole, you are invited to sign up to a webinar with Bristol City Council on 9 December at 11am. Hosted by Visit West, it will give an overview of the scheme with a chance to ask questions.
