How to have your say
We would like your views on our proposals and the outlined potential additional measures to improve air quality in our area. We would also like to hear your views on financial support or exemptions that could be put in place to help people affected.
The consultation will close at midnight on 3 September 2019.
Have your say on Sheffield's proposals
A charging zone is not required in Rotherham for the Borough to achieve compliance, however the findings of the study indicate that Sheffield will need to introduce a charging zone covering non-compliant buses, taxis, heavy good vehicles (HGVs) and light goods vehicles (LGVs) within (but including) the inner ring-road of the city centre, in order to achieve legal compliance by 2021. Sheffield City Council is currently consulting on this.
Within a charging CAZ, drivers are required to pay a charge if their vehicle does not meet minimum emissions standards.
Rotherham residents, in particular small business owners and drivers of taxis, LGVs and HGVs, may be affected by Sheffield City Council's proposed charging zone. Part of Rotherham's proposal includes a financial support package for taxi drivers licensed in Rotherham, Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) and individuals who use LGVs, to access a mixture of grant funding and interest-free loans to help them to buy cleaner vehicles.
