Low emission parking

In my home town I've just noticed a new type of car park, its right in the city centre, and its for 'low emission vehicles only'. I didn't catch all the details but it looks like its a car park only for cars in tax bands A-D and for other vehicles such as motorbikes (and push bikes).

What do you think? Is this a good environmentally friendly idea, or just more bullying of the poor driver?
