HGV and van operators invited to free Sheffield Clean Air Roadshow on 17 March

If your operation will be affected by Sheffield's Clean Air Zone (CAZ) plans, then make sure to put 17 March in your diary.

Sheffield City Council’s CAZ is due to come into force in 2021. This will see a ‘category C’ charging zone applied to buses, taxis, vans and HGVs.

It is being put in place to bring the city’s harmful NO2 & NOx emissions within legal limits as soon as possible.

The zone will cover the inner ring road and the city centre, including Park Square and the A61/Parkway junction.

To enter free of charge, HGVs and vans must be Euro-6 standard, with older vehicles expected to pay £50 per lorry and £10 for vans.

To help commercial vehicle operators located within the zone, or regularly travelling into Sheffield, Motor Transport is working with the city council to bring you a free half-day roadshow to answer all your questions.

You’ll hear directly from the council about its air quality plans and planned support measures to help local businesses, followed by a series of short workshops to help your fleet prepare for the zone.

In addition, you’ll also get to see a range of the latest Euro-6 and alternatively-fuelled vehicles on the market today.

Book today to secure a place, as numbers do tend to fill up quickly for these events. The event is being held on 17 March at Magna in Rotherham.
