Did you know that Birmingham City Council are looking to introduce a congestion charge for vehicles coming into the city centre and the wider areas around it?

“We need cleaner air as soon as possible and have already started to make positive changes. The Government expects Birmingham, and a number of other cities, to introduce a Clean Air Zone (CAZ) from January 2020. This doesn’t give us long, but it is still important that we follow the right steps and ask the right questions to ensure that we take the right actions and make the right changes.

We have been gathering and analysing a lot of information so we know how bad our air pollution is and how it is likely to be improved by a CAZ. This consultation is an opportunity for us to tell you what we have found out so far, and for you to tell us what you think and how you will be affected by the CAZ.”
– from the Birmingham City Council website.

 

What are your thoughts on this?  Do you work in the city centre and how will it affect you?

In other news it's been reported that trees,plant and grass  save the lives of 1,900 people a year . The Office for National Statistics said large amounts of air pollution was removed by vegetataion in 2015 which meant there were fewer lung and heart related hospital admissions. So maybe BCC should also be thinking of a greener city aswell?
