Helping You Upgrade Into Your ULEZ & CAZ Compliant Van
The Bristol Clean Air Zone is now in place and non-compliant vehicles are required to pay a daily fee to enter. Many businesses and individuals are struggling to meet these requirements, and are facing increased spending on travel. Thankfully the Shire Leasing Van Scheme is here to help you get into a greener compliant vehicle and enjoy fee-free motoring.
One Bristol business has benefited from £6000 of financial support in the first grant and subsidised finance agreement administered by Shire Leasing PLC through Bristol's Clean Air Zone Financial Assistance Scheme. The scheme provides direct financial support in the form of a grant, interest-subsidised finance, or a combination of the two to help people and businesses avoid paying a daily charge of up to £100.Find Your Next CAZ Compliant Van at Vanbase >
Bristol City Council have appointed Shire Leasing PLC to deliver on this new scheme, financially supporting businesses to invest in lower emission vehicles, and to make greener and affordable improvements. Through Shire's dedicated Bristol Clean Air Zone webpage, eligible businesses can submit an online finance application with credit decisions returned within 8 working hours.
Shire Leasing's 'Driving Clean Air' programme already supports businesses upgrading vehicles through other similar schemes across the UK. In 2020, they worked closely with Bath & North East Somerset Council to develop the first Clean Air Zone Financial Assistance Scheme, providing funding for over 40% of all vehicles replaced.
Mayor of Bristol, Marvin Rees, commented: "As part of the financial support process, businesses can get invaluable guidance and direction from Shire in applying for grants, seeking the best vehicles to upgrade to or your part exchange options."
