Bath’s Clean Air Zone


In 2021, we’re introducing a Clean Air Charging Zone (CAZ) in Bath to improve air quality across the city by the end of 2021.


This means that if you’re still driving a pre-Euro 6 diesel/pre-Euro 4 petrol non-compliant taxi or private hire vehicle, you’ll be charged every day that you drive in the zone.


If you haven’t already, register your interest now for the financial assistance scheme to help you replace your vehicle to a compliant version.  You can find more information at this link:


Hybrid and electric cars are exempt.


September 2020: proposed amendment to Taxi Licensing Policy for non-compliant, wheel-chair accessible taxis:


The Clean Air Zone (CAZ) in Bath will be launched in early 2021 and we have developed a concession where non-compliant, wheel-chair accessible taxis can be exempt from charges until 31 December 2022.  This is to ensure that vulnerable persons who rely on this method of transport can continue to access facilities and attend medical appointments whilst not being detrimentally impacted by the introduction of the CAZ.


There is a need to amend the existing taxi licensing policy, which requires all licensed vehicles to be compliant, to allow for this concession.  The Licensing Committee have already endorsed this amendment to the policy in their meeting on 5 February 2020 and here is a link to the minutes of that meeting


This amendment now needs to be confirmed by the Council’s Cabinet in their meeting on 5 November 2020.


We are inviting any further comments about this proposed amendment from the taxi trade or members of the public and we would be grateful if they could be forwarded to before 5pm on Friday 9 October 2020.
