As the first Clean Air Zone introduced outside of London in March 2021, Bath's Clean Air Zone (CAZ) is part of a nationwide scheme to crack down on air pollution. Since its launch, the scheme has successfully lowered levels of nitrogen dioxide by 21%, with more than 90% of HGVs, buses, coaches and taxis now compliant with emission standards.
"You can't see it and you can't smell it, but nitrogen dioxide is a hidden killer, contributing to as many as 36,000 early deaths in the UK each year." - Dr Bruce Laurence, director of public health.
When a city emits high levels of Nitrogen dioxide (NO2), it can affect a child's lung development and contribute to the development of asthma from an early age. The Bath CAZ is improving air quality by reducing air pollution to keep older residents and children of Bath safe.
