Commercial vehicle grant
On 1 June 2021, to meet the Government’s requirements, Birmingham introduced a Clean Air Zone (CAZ) within the A4540 Middleway ring road (not the Middleway itself).
Vehicles that do not meet nationally set emissions standards will be charged to enter this area.
For heavy duty vehicles (HDV), which means vehicles with the classifications N2, N3 or M3, and for light goods vehicles (LGV), with the classification of N1, the minimum required to be CAZ compliant is Euro VI for diesel engines and Euro IV for petrol engines.
To help small to medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) with HDVs, coaches and/or LGVs upgrade their fleet to meet Birmingham's Clean Air Zone emission standards, we have secured a £10.05million commercial grant.
Eligible businesses must be able to evidence that they:
- are based within the Clean Air Zone, wider Birmingham or West Midlands area, and
- are conducting commercial operations within the Clean Air Zone
The commercial vehicle grant will be administered in accordance with the subsidy control regime.
The total grant package for each applicant is up to £180,000.
For heavy duty vehicles (HDV) - N2, N3, and M3, the grant will be up to a maximum of £15,000 per vehicle towards purchase, lease or retrofit solution.
For light goods vehicles (LGV) - N1, the grant will be up to 35% of the cost of the upgrade up to a maximum grant amount of £4,000 per vehicle towards purchase, lease or retrofit solution.
