Birmingham Clean Air Zone Charging Order 2021

The Charging Order sets out the full details of how Birmingham’s Clean Air Zone will operate. The Order (except Article 7) came into force on 26 April 2021. Article 7 (Imposition of charges) will come into force on 1 June 2021. This means that from 1 June 2021 onwards vehicles of specified classes that do not meet the emissions standards set out in the Order will, subject to specified exemptions, be required to pay the charge stated in the Order to drive in Birmingham’s Clean Air Zone. The owners of high polluting vehicles will be charged to drive within the A4540 Middleway (but not the Middleway itself).

The Order sets out the temporary and permanent exemptions available, how the council will approach any enforcement associated with non-payment of the Clean Air Zone daily fee and how it intends to use any income generated from the zone.

CAZ boundary maps

The boundary maps outline the position of the Birmingham Clean Air Zone (CAZ) boundary, shown against Ordnance Survey base maps. This enables individual streets directly adjacent to the boundary to be identified. The CAZ boundary is marked by a thick yellow band and a shaded yellow area to identify the area within the CAZ.

View the complete boundary map

The full CAZ boundary is broken down into 20 individual maps each of which represent a small section of the CAZ boundary in a greater level of detail. These are numbered one through twenty, moving clockwise around the boundary, each sheet overlaps slightly with the previous and the next to ensure that the full boundary is shown.

There are two sheets which act as keys to enable the user to identify which individual sheet a specific section of the CAZ boundary is located on.
