Birmingham's Clean Air Zone
Revenue raised from the Clean Air Zone
The objective of the Clean Air Zone is to improve air quality so when £0 money is raised, our objective will be achieved as it means no high-polluting vehicles will be passing through the zone.
Any money raised from the zone has to be reinvested in transport related projects and policies; it cannot be used to support the council's general budget and fund services such as bin collections.
Some of the projects already identified include:
- implementing controlled parking zones on the outskirts of the A4540 Middleway to protect residents from people parking their vehicles on the outside
- investment in pedestrianisation and active travel improvements
- funding 20 hydrogen buses for a pilot scheme that will go live in 2021
