A SECOND consultation on Scotland’s Low Emission Zones is seeking views on enforcement, penalties, national exemptions and more, as the Scottish Government aims to ensure consistency in how LEZs operate across Glasgow, Edinburgh, Dundee and Aberdeen by the end of 2020.

Holyrood’s vision is for Scotland to have the best air quality in Europe and welcoming the opportunity for the public to have their say, cabinet secretary for Transport, Michael Matheson said: ‘We know from previous consultations that there is broad support for the potential of Low Emission Zones to protect public health and improve air quality, but there are a variety of views on our proposals for how LEZs will work consistently across Scotland.

‘Through the Transport (Scotland) Act 2019 we have created the legal framework to create nationally consistent LEZs. I would encourage anyone with an interest to respond to this consultation on our ambitious proposals for Scotland’s Low Emission Zones.’
