From the 28th September 2020, high-emission HGVs and buses will be charged £50 per day to drive in the city. High-emission taxis and private hire vehicles will be charged £12.50 per day, and vehicles licensed with Leeds City Council will be eligible for a reduced £50 per week rate.
300 automatic number plate recognition (ANPR) cameras have been installed at over a hundred junctions around the perimeter of the zone.
More than £5.4 million in financial support has been awarded to help local businesses switch to cleaner vehicles and an additional £3.1 million has been provisionally approved.
The zone was created after the Government told Leeds to tackle air pollution as soon as possible after finding that parts of the city would probably exceed legal air quality limits in 2020.
