- Southampton civic chiefs have pushed back plans for a Clean Air Zone in the city, and will now submit proposals at the end of January – two months after originally billed. [16th November 2018]
What we know so far
Southampton City Council's consultation on Clean Air Zone plans closed on the 13th September. Under the current proposals the CAZ would cover most of the city (see map below) though this will be refined if the proposal meets with approval. Widespread opposition to the plans has caused some delays to the process.
The proposed charge per day for non-compliant HGVs is £100 with no charge currently proposed for non-compliant vans. However these charges are not final and may change before the target implementation date at the end of 2019.
