Recent announcements from Transport for London, Bath and North East Somerset Council and Birmingham City Council confirming introduction dates and charges for pre- Euro 6 diesel trucks have been supported by offers of grants for smaller businesses to upgrade to compliant Euro 6 vehicles.

With plans now confirmed for the introduction of Clean Air/Low Emission Zones in Birmingham, Bath and London from as early as 1st March next year, operators with older vehicles could be eligible for government grants of up to £20,000 to upgrade to a Euro VI DAF.

 

 
 
 
London

Greater London

Surrounding the existing Ultra Low Emission Zone and effectively extending it for HGVs, the current London Low Emission Zone, which covers the Greater London Area, will be subject to more stringent requirements from 1st March 2021. Diesel powered vehicles greater than 3.5tonnes GVW which don’t meet the Euro VI standard will be subject to daily charge of £100.   From the same date and in the same area, goods vehicles greater than 12tonnes GVW will also need to have a HGV Safety Permit. Grants of up to £15,000 are available for sole traders, micro and small businesses and charities to upgrade a non-compliant HGV to one that meets Euro VI.

“* the London Scrappage Scheme for HGVs is currently suspended due to unprecedented demand and limited funds.”
