Government intervention - Clean Air Zones
A Clean Air Zone is defined an area where targeted action is taken to improve air quality.
It can be confined to a single road or a part of a city (for which areas of the UK are considering or decided to introduce a CAZ see the map to the right).
This can include an area in which vehicles can be charged or fined for entering.
The Government has a long term strategy to improve air quality across the country by discouraging the use of older, more polluting, vehicles and has a short term goal to reduce the number of areas in the UK where air pollution breaches legal limits.
Five cities have been mandated by the Government to introduce a Clean Air Zone, these are Birmingham, Leeds, Nottingham, Derby and Southampton.
The Government has also named 23 local authorities where it expects pollution levels to reach illegal levels by 2021. They must all carry out a feasibility study to determine whether or not a Clean Air Zone is required.
