Bristol City Council has embarked on two schemes to influence driver behaviour to help reduce air pollution - Idling action and School Streets. A Bristol Walking Alliance meeting on 6th January was given a briefing on the two schemes.
Bristol’s Clean Air Plan was decided at a Cabinet meeting on 5th November. A better scheme would have a joined-up plan to tackle together air pollution, congestion and the climate emergency.
The consultation on the council’s transport Clean Air Plan started on 1 July and ends on 12 August. On 21 July, the modelling results for the two consultation options were published.
The Council has published its delayed Clean Air Plan proposals: either a small city centre zone in which older diesel cars are banned, or a medium Clean Air Zone in which older vehicles other than cars are charged.
