SIGNS Clear Air Zones Guidance

The Scaffolding Association is proud to publish details – the first of its kind – which demonstrate the scale of Clean Air Zones (CAZ) being introduced across England, Scotland and Wales.

Bath, Birmingham, and London already have schemes in place which are imposing charges on certain light and heavy commercial vehicles to enter specific areas and nearly a dozen more major towns and cities across the UK are at the advanced stages of introducing similar arrangements.

In recent years, government has increased the pressure on local authorities to improve air quality and many have chosen to introduce charges to deter the most polluting vehicles from entering their towns and cities.

The devolved powers that these local authorities have been given from central government has led to inconsistencies to the types of vehicles affected and the charges being applied from one town or city to another, causing significant confusion for fleet operators.

The Scaffolding Association is pleased to be able to provide their CAZ Tracker, which will help their members and the wider sector to understand the implications and support them when quoting for work and planning their journeys. Download your FREE copy of the guidance here.

SIGNS is designed to help all those who produce outputs that are aimed at maintaining and improving safety during work at height (WAH) for the following audiences: designers, clients, managers (those managing WAH), supervisors and operatives.
