FAQs

GENERAL

top

We’re proposing a Class D, Charging Clean Air Zone, which means that all higher emission buses, coaches, HGVs, private hire vehicles, taxis, LGVs/vans and cars would be charged when driving in Bath’s city centre (the proposed zone) from late 2020.

A charging zone in the centre of Bath would quickly improve the air we breathe by encouraging more people to either drive lower emission vehicles, or switch to other ways to get around such as walking, cycling or public transport.

The Government has told us that we must reduce NO2 in Bath to within EU and National limits in the shortest possible time (and by 2021 at the latest). After extensive analysis, a Class D CAZ was determined to be the most effective option to meet this target when compared to other schemes.
