Since March 2018 we’ve been talking to you about a Clean Air Plan for Bath that will help us to reduce high levels of nitrogen dioxide (NO2) in the city to within legal limits by 2021 at the latest. This type of air pollution is caused by vehicle emissions.

Cabinet members have now decided on a plan that features a class C clean air zone (CAZ), charging all higher emission vehicles - except cars - to drive in the city centre from late 2020.

The plan also features traffic management at Queen Square (a measure that enables us to exempt cars from charges), and a range of support to lessen the impact of the zone on the community and encourage a shift to cleaner transport.
