Glasgow City Council ran an online consultation from the 17th February to 29th March 2020 regarding Glasgow's proposed Low Emission Zone. The outcomes of this are now published and can be viewed here.

A report from SEPA, published on Clean Air Day 2020, provides strong evidence that air quality in Glasgow has improved since the introduction of the Low Emission Zone in 2018.

The full report can be found here.

The Glasgow LEZ

The impact of the lockdown

The revised national timetable means that it will not be possible for Phase 2 of the Glasgow LEZ to apply to all vehicles by 31 December 2022 as originally planned due to new indicative timescales for the enforcement of LEZs. This is because LEZs in Scotland can only be enforced after a compulsory grace period which has to last for at least a year from its introduction.

Glasgow City Council is currently examining the implications of the indicative timescale on the dates for the start of enforcement and a revised timetable for Glasgow's LEZ will be published as soon as possible.
