Clean Air initiative to combat air-pollution in Nottingham City Centre.   

A new Clean Air Zone proposed by Nottingham City Council means air pollution could be brought down to the legal level by 2020.

Not applying to cars, but diesel-fuelled buses, HGVs, coaches and most controversially – taxis, city centre drivers must meet strict standards for their commute under the current proposals. Most diesel vehicles built after 2015 adhere to the standards. Petrol vehicles would have to comply with the standards of Euro V, applying to most vehicles built since 2011.

Full details of the plans are to be announced in June. The government will  formally approve the plans in August.

However, Azad Choudhury Labour Councillor for Arboretum Ward has argued these new plans will penalise taxi drivers.
