Bath Clean Air Zone petition

Scrap the Bath Clean Air Zone

Why is this important?

Please share to multiple people!! We don't have long to stop this madness..

This is important because this scheme is really just a tax on the poor and vulnerable dressed up as pollution concern.
At £9 for a car or van, and a whopping £100 for an hgv this will really put pressure on those already struggling. The area is huge and virtually impossible to avoid without creating gridlock on rat runs and smaller residential roads.
The traffic will be pushed out to already crippled roads, raising pollution around schools and residential areas.
The council stands to raise at least £12 million per year, which is really what this is all about.
The rich, who can afford new or electric cars will not be charged.
It will also cripple businesses in the centre that already have to pay criminal amounts of business rates.
There are other ways to lower pollution, this is not the answer.

Please sign the petition to help to halt this blatant tax on the poor.
And please go to http://bathnes.gov.uk/breathe to fill in the public consultation response to show them what we REALLY think!!

Thank you

Reasons for signing

  • Just a tax to drive as if we don't pay enough already
  • Sole trader using van can not afford to replace vehical
  • Ill thought-out plan which will deter people from using Bath - tourists, shoppers, businesses and rail users. Bath does need a CAZ but this needs to be supported by addition 24/7 park and rides, a relief road for casual users, a deterrent to non-residents parking just outside the zone and non-chargeable access to supermarkets, petrol stations and other car related businesses.
