Clean Air Zone

Bristol City Council are introducing a Clean Air Zone in late summer 2022 to tackle harmful pollution from vehicles. The council has £42 million of funding to help residents and businesses, including financial support to replace older and more polluting vehicles that would be charged to drive in the zone.

Check whether your vehicle will be charged

Check your vehicle HERE.

Bristol City Council estimate 71% of vehicles already meet the zone’s emissions standards, only older and more polluting vehicles will be charged.

Funding support

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.
More details on financial support HERE.

Get ready

BID members can find out more about the zone and financial support to help them prepare by visiting the Clean Air Zone website and attending free events.

The full list of the events location for June 2022 is HERE.
