Allow Charity vehicles and volunteers free access into the CAZ Clean Air Zone

We the undersigned We are appealing that Bristol City Council allow Charity vehicles and volunteers free access into the CAZ Clean Air Zone. Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic and the current cost of living crisis, it should be clear to Bristol Council that volunteers have propped up the city, not only by keeping the most vulnerable safe and well during this time, but doing this all with very limited financial support from the council. Charity workers have taken a massive weight off Bristol City Council shoulders for all the incredible work they have been doing.

Bristol City council have introduced this clean air zone in the city, and the volunteers that are supporting the most vulnerable are no longer going to be able to afford to get in and out of the city. We are also aware of local homeless charities that rely on getting around the city centre to be able to feed the homless are going to be in a further significant financial struggle.

For us at suicide prevention, Bristol, these are the costs we are facing:

The current costs for 2 vehicles to enter the Clean Air Zone will be:

£18 per day.
£126 per week
£504 per month.
£6,046 yearly.

This is simply unaffordable and Bristol city council must support charities and volunteers like we supported them through the pandemic.
