Bath's Clean Air Zone

To help reduce pollution and improve air quality, some local authorities are introducing clean air zones (known as CAZ) in inner city areas. If you drive in a clean air zone and your vehicle exceeds certain emission standards, you may have to pay a charge. Bath's Clean Air Zone takes effect on 15 March 2021. From this date, you may need to pay a charge if you wish to drive your vehicle in the zone.

Charges do not apply to all vehicles. Private cars and motorcycles will not be charged, and other vehicles will only be charged if they exceed Bath’s new emission standards. We recommend using the vehicle checker to see whether charges will apply to your vehicle.

Please also check our list of local exemptions and discounts, and whether you might qualify for financial support to help you upgrade or replace non-compliant vehicles.
