Bath and North East Somerset Council has launched a consultation on proposals to introduce a Clean Air Zone that will apply charges to non-compliant, higher emitting vehicles by the end of 2020.

The plans proposed would see pre-Euro 4 petrol and pre-Euro 6 diesel buses, coaches and HGVs would be charged £100/day and the same standards of cars, taxis and vans would be charged £9/day. 

The BVRLA will be submitting a response to the consultation highlighting its set of recommendations which were devised following engagement earlier this year with the first five cities considering implementing Clean Air Zones.

The association also wrote to 23 local authorities, including Bath and North East Somerset Council, last week to offer an industry view on air quality measures they may be considering applying.
