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 outside of the Clean Air Zone, but work inside it, you could be eligible for support if you meet all of the following criteria:

  • are the registered owner/keeper of a non-compliant vehicle (must be in your name, not a relative's or partner's)
  • work at least 18 hours per week at premises based within the zone
  • earn less than £30,000 per year

Before applying for an exemption or financial incentive, you need to first check if you will be charged
