First Low Emission Zone for Glasgow – Have Your Say

It has been announced that Glasgow will be the first Scottish city to put in place a Low Emission Zone (LEZ). The aim is for the LEZ to be established by the end of 2018 and the Scottish Government has previously pledged that there will be four LEZs in place in Scottish cities by 2020.

The LEZ is likely to initially focus on reducing emissions from buses operating in the centre of the city, with a focus on retrofitting older buses to improve emissions or to replace them with Euro VI models, where possible. Later phases will focus on commercial vehicles and passenger cars.

The introduction of the Glasgow LEZ will improve air quality by eliminating air pollution hotspots which will result in improved health and ensure that Glasgow continues to be an attractive place to live, work and visit.

There is currently a Scottish consultation paper which sets out the proposed arrangements and options to deliver a consistent approach to designing, building and managing LEZs in Scotland. It seeks views on issues such as the LEZ hours of operation, enforcement and exemptions. You can respond to the consultation here https://consult.gov.scot/transport-scotland/building-scotlands-low-emission-zones/ before the deadline of 28 November 2017.
