Dundee Low Emission Zone
A delivery group was established in September 2019 to lead the development of a Dundee Low Emission Zone.
The Dundee LEZ will contribute to the broader city objectives and the vision to create a healthy, vibrant and attractive city by protecting public health through improving air quality in Dundee and achieving air quality compliance.
Air pollution is harmful to health, especially for the young, elderly and those with heart and lung conditions.
Dundee has already made progress in reducing levels of air pollution. However, there are still streets where nitrogen dioxide (NO2) levels exceed the legal standards. Road traffic is the main source of nitrogen dioxide so more action is needed.
The Covid-19 pandemic has had a major impact on people’s travelling behaviour and nitrogen dioxide (NO2) levels. Dundee City Council is working closely with Transport Scotland and the other three cities to take forward Low Emission Zones during the current crisis and progress is being reviewed regularly.
