Birmingham City Council publishes CAZ business case
Birmingham City Council have published their business case for the clean air zone (CAZ) to be implemented within the inner ring-road in Birmingham. Due to come into force in January 2020, the zone will charge vehicles considered to be the most polluting, especially diesel vehicles and petrol cars built before 2006. The business case it to be approved by BCC Cabinet and does require funding approval from Central Government in Westminster before it can be implemented.
It is hoped that the CAZ will reduce people driving into the city centre and increase public transport use, reducing the polluting air in the city centre that poses so much of a health risk as well as reduce the carbon footprint of the city.
