Clean Air Zone
A Clean Air Zone is an area where targeted action is taken to improve air quality. Clean Air Zones aim to reduce all types of air pollution, including nitrogen dioxide and particulate matter, so that people breathe in less of all these pollutants.
Between 4 July and 17 August, Birmingham will be consulting on a Clean Air Zone for the city centre. This would mean that the most polluting vehicles would have to pay a charge to enter the zone.
