Chargeable Clean Air Zone within outer ring road
Option three includes a proposal for a clean air zone where the most polluting vehicles will have to pay to drive in a specified area and again it would be a class D CAZ, covering all types of vehicles. The size of this zone would be much bigger though, covering the area within the whole of the outer ring road in Derby.
In addition to the charging zone, this option would also include:
- Traffic management/signal measures specific to Stafford Street
Various measures to reduce the number of vehicles using Stafford Street.
- Clean Air Incentive Scheme – a more significant scheme than in option two
This scheme would need to be even bigger than in option one or option two in order to help more people to upgrade their vehicles. This is because a significantly greater number of people would be affected by the charge, including many people who could not afford to purchase a new vehicle or may be unable to change their travel choices.
The scheme would be targeted at residents, people who travel to work in Derby and small businesses based in Derby.
Again there would be various levels of grant available to further encourage the early uptake of the scheme, the purchase of ultra-low emission vehicles, and support those where the financial barrier to change is greatest.
- Low Emission Measures
Similar measures to those in option one.
