Scotland’s first Low Emission Zone

TexScotland’s first Low Emission Zone (came into effect in Glasgow city centre at the start of this year.
The LEZ is being phased in and, to start with, will apply to local service buses only. However, on 31 December 2022 when the LEZ is fully implemented, all vehicles entering the zone will have to meet specified exhaust emission standards. The scheme will be enforced by Automatic Number Plate Recognition
Glasgow’s LEZ will eventually adopt the following emission standards:
•Euro 3 for motorcycles and mopeds
•Euro 4 for petrol cars, vans, minibuses and other specialist vehicles
•Euro 6 for diesel cars, vans and minibuses and other specialist vehicles
•Euro VI for lorries, buses and coaches and other specialist heavy diesel engine vehicles
A spokesperson for Glasgow City Council commented: “Glasgow's LEZ is modelled as being capable of making significant reductions in levels of air pollution in the city centre. Our pragmatic and phased approach will ensure a manageable yet robust timetable for implementation that looks at the city’s overall needs to ensure it won’t have a detrimental impact on people’s lives, businesses and the vitality of the city centre.
“Other cities across Europe adopted similar lead-in times for their low-emission zones, so it’s a reasonable amount of time to get the message out to businesses and residents so they are informed and can prepare.”
