When the Clean Air Zone (CAZ) launches a number of locally-based non-compliant taxis, private hire vehicles (PHVs), buses, coaches, and heavy goods vehicles (HGVs) that would normally regularly travel through the area covered by the CAZ would face a daily charge.
We want to help those most affected by the CAZ charges by offering financial support to assist with the improvement of local commercial vehicles. If businesses replace their non-compliant vehicles with cleaner greener vehicles they will avoid the daily charge, and we will have less polluting vehicles in the city.
We have secured £1,751,500 through the Government’s Clean Air Fund to assist with the cost of the replacement and retrofit of the most polluting buses, coaches, taxis, private hire vehicles and HGVs.
We will be providing more information on the financial support available soon.
