Glasgow's Low Emission Zone now in operation

Glasgow's Low Emission Zone became operational from 31 December 2018, with plans to extend to all vehicle types by the end of 2022.

While it initially affects local service buses only, Scotland's first ever Low Emission Zone will be extended to all vehicle types by the end of 2022. Low Emission Zones are due to become operational in Edinburgh, Aberdeen and Dundee by 2020.

Cllr Anna Richardson, Convener for Sustainability and Carbon Reduction said: "Delivering cleaner air is a priority for our city and so I'm delighted that Glasgow has led the way by introducing Scotland's first LEZ. I know from the many conversations I've had, that there's widespread support for the LEZ. It's a vital step to ensure our city centre is a welcoming, healthy and pleasant place to be.

"Whilst it'll be another four years before the emission standards required to enter our LEZ will apply to all vehicles, we want to raise awareness early to ensure that everyone is informed and has time to prepare. The success of the LEZ depends on us getting our message out there as soon as possible so we'll continue to engage with individuals and businesses in the run up to the end of 2022. I'm also encouraging people to find out more about Glasgow's LEZ and how it might affect them by visiting our dedicated LEZ webpages."
