Bradford CAZ consultation now open

A consultation on the proposed clean air zone (CAZ) in Bradford is now available online.

The CAZ could mean that pre-Euro VI HGVs  are charged up to £50 a day to enter the zone.

If you’re likely to be affected by the CAZ plans we’d ask you take a few minutes out to complete the survey.

Chris Ashley, the RHA’s head of policy for environment and regulation slammed the plans saying that they disproportionately target trucks despite the sector slashing its nitrogen oxide emissions by 60 percent since 2013.

He told the Yorkshire Post that the government and councils need to do more to improve air quality but charging zones is not the right approach.

“We have an issue with the design of clean air zones nationally. We think it’s inflexible and unfair.”

The consultation runs until March 26.
