Scottish LEZs due 2022
Low Emission Zones (LEZs) are due to be introduced across Glasgow, Edinburgh, Dundee and Aberdeen between February 2022 and May 2022.
Plans to implement Low Emission Zones (LEZs) across the four cities were paused temporarily in May in response to the COVID-19 outbreak. They were expected to be introduced later this year. Due to the impact of the pandemic, the new timescale is not finalised. It is a commitment by all partners to work as quickly as they can to introduce LEZs at the earliest juncture.
Cabinet Secretary for Transport, Infrastructure and Connectivity, Michael Matheson, said: “The Scottish Government and members of the Low Emission Zone Leadership Group are committed to introducing LEZs across Scotland’s four biggest cities as quickly as possible.
“LEZs are key to improving air quality, protecting public health and supporting Scotland’s wider climate change ambitions by encouraging more sustainable transport options.
“With the indicative timeline now established, planning continues at a local authority level and the Scottish Government will continue to develop the required regulations as well as providing funding to help people and businesses prepare.”
