Clean air Sheffield doubles electric vehicle charge fees
April 1, 2023
A Clean Air Zone started in Sheffield on Monday February 27 presenting charges for polluting vehicles including public transport like buses and taxis.
From April 1 the council has increased fees at electric vehicle charging points situated in its car parks from 30p/kWh to 72p/kWh.
The council says the increase will bring it into line with the national average price amid significant rises in energy prices.
The Clean Air Zone affects road users on and within the A61/A57
Heavy goods vehicles, buses and coaches which do not meet minimum standards face a hefty £50 daily charge if entering the zone. Payments can be up to six days before or after driving in the zone.
The minimum standards for diesel and petrol vehicles falling into these categories are generally those vehicles defined as having Euro 6 diesel or Euro 4 petrol engines.
Private car owners and motorcyclists should not need to worry about Clean Air as it does not affect them.
While we would urge you to park up to surf the internet and not to do so while driving, further details are at this
Sheffield Clean Air Zone page.
