03 April 2018

Article: 52/1305

Further to Current note 52/1104, Glasgow City Council has announced its plans to have Scotland’s first Low Emission Zone (LEZ) in place as 2018 draws to a close.

The new zone, covering the city centre, is due to come into effect at 23:59 on 31 December 2018. It will mark the start of a journey which will ultimately lead to all vehicles entering the zone being fully compliant by 31 December 2022.

Details were discussed in an update report to the Environment, Sustainability and Carbon Reduction City Policy Committee on 20 March 2018. The report outlines the work being undertaken by the council and partners including Transport Scotland, Strathclyde Partnership for Transport (SPT) and SEPA to address the various technical and legal matters associated with establishing a LEZ in Glasgow.
