PORTSMOUTH CLEAN AIR FUND OPEN AS CAZ CAMERAS NOW BEING INSTALLED


From last month, contractors working on behalf of Portsmouth City Council have started installing cameras and supporting poles to prepare for the launch of Portsmouth’s new Clean Air Zone (CAZ) in Autumn this year. The cameras will use an automatic number plate recognition system (ANPR) to identify any ‘non-compliant’ vehicles that enter the zone. They’ll only be used for this purpose and will always point towards traffic in order to read number plates. The cameras are being installed at 34 sites around the edge of the CAZ, with a further five inside it and the council aims to have all the cameras in place by the end of September 2021. The charging Clean Air Zone will result in a daily charge being issued to the most polluting vehicles for driving in the zone – these vehicles are referred to as ‘non-compliant’ vehicles. For the Portsmouth charging CAZ, non- compliant vehicles are HGVs, buses and coaches, taxis and PHVs that: Do not meet Euro 6 emissions stan-


Some funding will be available for affected drivers to retrofit or upgrade to greener, cleaner ones.


Taxis and private hire vehicles


dards (so are Euro 5 or older) if they are diesel


Do not meet Euro 4 emissions stan- dards (so are Euro 3 or older) if they are petrol The council is not currently proposing to charge vans, as the government has approved plans for a charging Class B CAZ. However, due to the uncertainty brought about by coronavirus, the gov- ernment has indicated they may require the charging of vans to meet air quality objectives. The proposed zone, approximately 3km2


, will be located to the south west of Portsmouth.

You can access £1,500 per vehicle to help you upgrade to a compliant taxi or PHV via purchase or lease. At the moment, there is enough fund- ing to support all active non-compliant vehicles licensed with Portsmouth City Council. This could change if more licensed non-compliant vehicles that aren’t currently being used return to operation. If this happens, the council will assess and prioritise each applica- tion for funding. There is no requirement for replace- ment vehicles to be electric to access the fund. If you’re looking to buy a vehicle to license as a taxi or PHV, you should make sure that you can license this for use with Portsmouth City Coun- cil and that it is compliant with the Clean Air Zone euro standard. From January 2022, any vehicles that are over four years old cannot be newly licensed, so you should make sure you can drive it in the CAZ before you buy a used vehicle. To apply for the fund, you’ll need to meet all the following criteria. You must be the registered keeper or owner of a ‘non-compliant’ private hire or hackney carriage vehicle. You may have more than one vehicle. The vehicle or vehicles must have been licensed with Portsmouth City Council at some point between May 2020 and the date you apply. You must make reasonable attempts to continually license your compliant vehi- cle for the next three years. You cannot have received any Clean Air Fund incentives from another council. You also cannot be in the process of applying for one, or planning to apply for one in future from another local authority.
