Charges are live for Birmingham's Clean Air Zone

Charges now apply for non-compliant vehicles which drive through Birmingham's Clean Air Zone. Payment must be made within the allocated timeframe or a Penalty Charge Notice will be issued. Find out how to pay the charge


If you live within the Clean Air Zone and own a non-compliant vehicle, you can apply for a temporary exemption permit. This means you will not be charged for the first two years that the zone is in operation.

As a resident, you are eligible for the longest temporary exemption permit (two years from launch of the Clean Air Zone on 1 June 2021) but will not be eligible for a financial incentive.
