A clean air strategy for Birmingham

Public Health England described air pollution as the single biggest environmental risk to public health. And air pollution contributes to between 28,000 and 36,000 premature deaths across the UK every year through conditions such as cancer, heart and lung disease.

The Government and local authorities are working to tackle this issue in a number of ways. In Birmingham the air pollutant of greatest concern is nitrogen dioxide. And around 80% of the pollutant is created by internal combustion engines.

The Clean Air Zone is one of the tools the Council is using to address this public health issue. It will achieve this by encouraging the owners of the most polluting vehicles to avoid the zone or to upgrade or replace these vehicles.

If your vehicle is not subject to the daily fee you can still be part of Birmingham’s journey to clean air by considering the alternatives to car use – especially for shorter journeys.
