Glasgow set for Scotland’s first low emission zone

Glasgow is set to become the first city in Scotland to reduce air pollution by imposing a low emission zone.

The proposal was given the go-ahead for buses last year, but now the city council has extended it to include all vehicle types by 2022.

The council says the scheme will improve air quality in the city centre and beyond and will be 'the beginning of a journey to make Glasgow a better place in which to live, work and visit.'

The policy will be supported by an economic appraisal including a consultation with interested parties to make sure the process is 'proportionate'.

Cllr Anna Richardson, city convener for sustainability and carbon reduction, said: 'I know from the many conversations I’ve had that there is widespread support for the LEZ.

'It’s a vital step to ensure our city centre is a welcoming, healthy and pleasant place to be.

'We’ll ensure a robust but manageable timetable for implementation that will balance the city’s needs whilst improving air quality.'
