Bristolians are being urged to unite and make small lifestyle changes to reduce pollution. Bristol City Council hopes major transport improvements combined with behaviour change across the city may help to clean up Bristol’s air quality, maintaining the positive changes we experienced during lockdown and lessening the need to charge or ban certain vehicles via a Clean Air Zone. However, if pollution returns back to the illegal, pre-COVID-19 levels, a charging zone will be required. A new consultation has also been launched today (Thursday 8 October) for the public to have their say on revised proposals for a CAZ, should this be needed, that would charge certain vehicles. This is being done to ensure Bristol can meet its legal obligations to reduce air pollution as quickly as possible.
