Were you aware there is an air pollution problem in Bristol? If so, what made you aware? (Please fill in details under 'Other')

Air pollution is a serious issue in Bristol. Some parts of the city are more polluted than others, but it's a problem that affects us all on a daily basis.

Does it impact you, your friends or your family on a personal level?            If so, in what way? (Please fill in details under 'Other')

How do you think we should tackle this problem?

How would you feel about a Charging Clean Air Zone in Bristol?

A so-called “Charging Clean Air Zone” is an area of the city where the most polluting vehicles are charged to enter. They are proven to be effective at reducing pollution within the zone. The actual details of what this charging zone would look like are still to be decided, but we'd expect it to be based on how much air pollution is emitted by different kinds of vehicles. It's likely that older diesel cars would be charged.  Find out more:

How would your opinion of a Charging Clean Air Zone change if it was accompanied by financial support for people who are unable to afford alternative means of transport, or those dependent on their vehicles to access services, for instance some disabled people?

Would a Charging Clean Air Zone change your behavior in any way?              If yes, how? (Please fill in details under 'Other')

What would you need for a Charging Clean Air Zone to work for you?

For example, some ideas might include bus passes, closer amenities, safer cycling routes, scrappage schemes. But we want to hear your ideas too!
How do you normally travel?

What journeys do you make most frequently, and how are these journeys made?

An example could be, 'I take my daughter to school every day and we use the car.' Or, 'I go shopping in the city every week and I go by bike.'
If you do drive, is there anything that would encourage you to drive less in the city?

The next 6 questions ask for information about you. This will help us to understand how air pollution can affect people differently. We're also trying to find out if there are especially appropriate solutions, so that we can work towards meeting the whole range of people's different needs. For example, by providing your postcode you're helping us build a picture of what you and your neighbours would like to see in your area.
