Birmingham begins Clean Air Zone enforcement

Drivers entering Birmingham’s Clean Air Zone will now be subject to penalty charges if entering the zone in a non-compliant vehicle.

Following a two-week grace period, Birmingham began enforcing the new rules on 14 June 2021.  

Unless a valid exemption is in place, drivers of cars, taxis and LCVs which do not meet the Clean Air Zone emission standard will be charged £8 a day and non-compliant coaches, buses and HGVs will be charged £50 per day.  

The Brum Breathes website contains everything you need to know about Birmingham’s ‘CAZ D’ Clean Air Zone, including details about local exemptions and financial incentives to support those impacted. 

As more cities introduce Clean Air Zones, the demand for cleaner vehicles is going to increase and the rental and leasing sectors are perfectly placed to provide affordable flexible CAZ-compliant vehicles to those individuals and businesses looking to switch to cleaner cars and vans.   

The BVRLA has published two articles to coincide with the launch of the Birmingham CAZ to help promote awareness and highlight the opportunities for the rental and leasing sectors:
