Bristol Council votes to ban diesel cars from 2021


Bristol’s urban area population of 724,000 is the 8th-largest in the UK, says Wikipedia. Diesel owners don’t have long to get rid of their cars, convert them to another fuel or find another method of transport if they need to get into town to work, shop or anything else during the day, after March 2021 – unless the next government decides to step in and save them.

Under the plan, all privately-owned diesel vehicles will be banned from entering it every day between 7am and 3pm by March 2021

Bristol is set to become the first city in the UK to ban diesel cars as part of its efforts to improve air quality, reports Energy Live News.

The city council’s Cabinet approved its plans for the Clean Air Zone in the city centre, under which all privately owned diesel vehicles will be banned from entering it every day between 7am and 3pm by March 2021.

It includes part of the M32, the old city, Redcliffe, Spike Island, the Harbourside and part of Hotwells.

Those vehicles that enter the zone within the stated time will incur fines, with the exception of taxis and emergency services.
