When Does Bristol’s Clean Air Zone Launch?
Electric vans have countless benefits. Not only do they benefit our environment by producing almost no greenhouses, but they are also provided with added incentives such as free parking and exemption from Clean Air Zone charges. Electric vans are starting to become increasingly popular, with more companies starting to introduce them.
Take a look at Van Sales UK‘s guide to the Clean Air Zone and when you can expect this to launch in Bristol.
What is a Clean Air Zone?
Essentially, a Clean Air Zone is an area where there is a conscious effort being made to improve the air quality. For those that drive vehicles that are non-compliant, they will have to pay a charge to access the area. This charge can be £9 a day for non-compliant cars, light goods vehicles and private hire vehicles. Yet drivers of non-compliant heavy good vehicles, buses and coaches can expect a £100 charge to access the area.
Putting this charge in place encourages people to swap their vehicles for one that is compliant. All of the money raised from charges will be used to invest in further measures that will improve the air quality. Bristol isn’t the first city to introduce Clean Air Zones, with Birmingham, Portsmouth and Bath leading the way first.
