Big Up Barton Hill

Later this year Bristol City Council will be introducing a Clean Air Zone to reduce harmful pollution from vehicles.

The zone is in the central area where air quality is poorest. No vehicles will be banned from driving in the zone, but older and more polluting vehicles will have to pay a daily charge to drive in it.

71 per cent of vehicles already meet the zone’s emission standards. We are offering financial support and advice to help people upgrade their vehicles or switch to a cleaner way of travelling.

Big Up Barton Hill Clean Air Zone networking event

Find out more at a Clean Air Zone networking event happening in east Bristol on Saturday 25 June at St Luke's Church, Barton Hill between 11am and 3pm.

How to prepare for the Clean Air Zone

Get ready for Bristol’s Clean Air Zone by following our three easy steps:

  • Check if your vehicle will be charged.
  • Check our interactive map to see how the zone affects you.
  • Check if you are eligible for financial support or an exemption.
  • Check if your community group is eligible for a grant to promote active/sustainable travel.
  • You can also find out if we can support you to make more journeys by public transport, cycling or walking on the Travelwest website.
