What is CAZ?

From mid-2020, Leeds city council will be introducing a Clean Air Charging Zone (CAZ) to reduce air pollution and protect the health of everyone in the city. The initiative is designed to help businesses transition to cleaner, less polluting vehicles which will benefit the people of Yorkshire.

What are the daily CAZ Charges for Leeds?

If your vehicle does not comply to CAZ standards, the charges are as follows:

  • HGV's, buses and coaches - £50 per day
  • Taxi and private hire vehicles - £12.50 per day (or £50 per week for Leeds-licensed vehicles)
  • Private cars, LGVs, vans, motorcycles and any other vehicle - no charge

Penalty charges will apply if you fail to pay the daily charge.

What areas are affected by CAZ in Leeds?


CAZ will be the largest zone of its kind in the country for Leeds. It covers most of the area inside the city's outer ring road, running from Farsley in the west to Colton in the east and Moor Allerton in the north to Hunslet in the south. Any vehicles that enter the zone which do not comply will need to pay a daily charge.
