Bristol’s Clean Air Zone

OSCS News 30-Nov-22 | By Steve

📢 GOOD NEWS! We are outside Bristol’s Clean Air Zone. 👍

The Government set legal limits for pollution and has introduced a Clean Air Zone to ensure Bristol meets those limits within the shortest possible time. Bristol’s zone is now live.  You must pay to drive within the zone if your vehicle does not meet the zone’s emission standards unless you have an exemption.

You can access our shop in Bedminster without paying the emission charge. 😎

What a Clean Air Zone is

A Clean Air Zone is a specific location that aims to reduce public exposure to nitrogen dioxide through:

  • restrictions on the highest polluting vehicles
  • encouraging the use of cleaner vehicles
  • encouraging people to walk, cycle or use public transports

Bristol has a small CAZ D Clean Air Zone. Find about the four different types of zones click here.

No vehicles are banned from entering a Clean Air Zone but older and more polluting vehicles have to pay a daily charge for travelling within the zone.

The charge does not apply to:

  • Euro 4, 5 and 6 petrol vehicles, roughly to vehicles made from 2006 onwards
  • Euro 6 diesel vehicles, roughly vehicles from 2015 onwards

The Clean Air Zone also includes:

  • loans and grants to help people switch to a cleaner vehicle or less polluting forms of transport
  • changes to traffic signal timings to improve traffic flows
  • increased priority for buses, such as bus lanes and priority at traffic signals
