High polluting vehicles will be charged to drive in Bath’s Clean Air Zone (CAZ) including most of the city centre and along the Lower Bristol Road, and the Wells Road.
Charges for higher emissions HGVs, coaches and buses (£100) and for high emissions LGVs and vans (£9) will start on 4 November 2020. Private cars and motorbikes will not be charged.
Thanks to pressure from local residents and myself, rat runs through Oldfield Park have been closed off such as the junctions of Brougham Hayes and the Lower Bristol Road, and Wells Road and its junctions with both Upper Oldfield Park and Oldfield Road.
Cllr Shaun Stephenson-McGall said, “This is good news for all as the CAZ will improve the air we all breathe. In addition, stopping rat running through Oldfield Park by higher emissions vehicles is a good start towards low traffic neighbourhoods.”
