Clean Air Zone

As part of ongoing strategies for environmental change, Birmingham City Council are hosting a public consultation regarding their Clean Air Zone proposals. The Clean Air Zone (CAZ) is due to be implemented through a phased approach by 2020.

We support environmental strategies as part of the Hammerson Positive Places initiative, however the Clean Air Zone will have a direct impact on the city centre and you can find out more on the CAZ website here.
