Zero CO2 emissions

The council reserves the right to check applications for vehicles with zero CO2 emissions.

DVLA records may show your vehicle CO2 emissions as ‘blank’. Vehicles that are considered zero emissions will be indicated by the DVLA with an applicable number (e.g. 0) on the vehicle’s logbook.  Where CO2 information is blank, permit prices will be based on vehicle engine size. If you are unsure which tier your vehicle falls in please refer to the vehicle log book (VQ5) which will contain this information.
