Find out about charges in Bath's Clean Air Zone

How we calculate Clean Air Zone charges

Charges for driving in Bath's Clean Air Zone will apply daily.

We will measure the daily charge from midnight to midnight, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. So even if your journey within the zone starts at 11pm, and finishes at 1am, for example, you will still need to pay two separate daily charges.

The amount you will have to pay

How much you pay depends on the type of vehicle you drive. Your vehicle type is listed on your V5C document, insurance and vehicle tax.

How to find the class of your vehicle online

Enter your vehicle's registration number into the GOV.UK vehicle tax checker service and look for the Vehicle Type Approvalinformation

The table below shows how much you’ll have to pay for each type of vehicle.
