By Car – Clean Air Zone From 1st June 2021 Birmingham Clean Air Zone WILL YOU NEED TO PAY? Charges are from midnight to midnight.

Birmingham’s Clean Air Zone started charging on Tuesday 1st June 2021 but estimates predict that 75% of cars will be exempt from charges. The zone, covering the centre of the city , aims to reduce pollution levels and encourage more people to switch to public transport to visit the city centre. It is different to the London congestion charge which charges all vehicles so it’s important that you know whether it applies to you or not.

Check your vehicle here to see if you would be charged:
