Clean Air Zone update 

15 June 2021

Campus Division is co-ordinating the University’s response to Bristol’s Clean Air Zone (CAZ) which will introduce daily charges for older and more polluting vehicles driving in the city centre and harbourside areas. 

The CAZ is due to be introduced in October to help bring air pollution from road traffic to within legal limits.  

A daily charge of £9 will apply to cars and vans with emissions standards below Euro 6 (diesel) and Euro 4 (petrol). As a rough guide, this means diesel vehicles made before 2015 and petrol ones made before 2006 will be charged. Higher charges of £100 per day will apply to HGVs, buses and coaches that don’t meet these standards. 

No vehicles will be banned from entering the CAZ and the city council will be offering exemptions and financial support for people most impacted, including low income workers and residents living within the zone. 

A map of the charging zone and full details of the charges, exemptions and financial support available (with updates as they are announced) are available from the council’s CAZ web pages. There is also an online tool for anyone to check itheir vehicle(s) might be liable for the charge. 

Further information for staff will be published on these pages as it becomes available.  

The University’s transport team (part of Campus Division) is also managing a Cleaner Fleet Programme to support departments in adapting their fleet transport operations to the CAZ.  

The first phase includes the allocation of new capital funding to help replace some of the University’s older fleet vehicles with zero emission alternatives, i.e. battery electric vehicleselectric cargo bikes and a pool of electric bikes for departmental business use. 

Further guidance on this funding will be issued in the coming weeks to departments which operate University fleet vehicles. 

Subsequent phases of the Cleaner Fleet Programme are planned to include a new fleet management system and an expanded campus car club offering departments dedicated access on demand to a range of shared vehicles for hourly hire.
