Clean Air Zones for 2022: live now and coming soon

Clean Air, Low Emission, and Zero Emission Zones have become increasingly common and more will launch in 2022 in the United Kingdom. The zones span polluted city centres and drivers pay to enter in vehicles that cannot meet minimum emission standards. In theory, this encourages them to switch to more eco-friendly models.

In Bath a daily charge applies to taxis, private hire vehicles, light goods vehicles, buses, coaches, heavy goods vehicles, and some camper vans that cannot meet the specified emission standards.

In Portsmouth non-compliant taxis, private hire vehicles, buses, coaches, and heavy goods vehicles incur a charge.
