Commercial vehicle operators and local businesses running vans or trucks, are invited to a free half-day roadshow on 6 March to hear first-hand from Bath & North East Somerset Council about plans for a proposed charging Clean Air Zone (CAZ) in central Bath.
Along with 27 other authorities, the council has been told by the Government to cut dangerous levels of nitrogen dioxide (NO2) in the shortest possible time or by 2021 at the latest.
Under the proposed plans, commercial vehicle operators would need to ensure their fleet vehicles meet Euro 6 standards for diesel and Euro 4 standards for petrol to avoid being charged in a proposed zone. Following a public consultation, the council is carrying out further assessments before it confirms a final plan.
You can find out more about CAZ proposals at www.bathnes.gov.uk/breathe
This free roadshow is a must for any business running or servicing commercial vehicle fleets in Bath & North East Somerset, providing invaluable advice via a series of short workshops to help both local and national operators future-proof their fleets.
Places do fill up quickly, so make sure to register for your free place as soon as possible.
