Dundee low emission zones
Dundee City Council is in the early stages of planning for the introduction of a low emission zone (LEZ) and is working with the Scottish Environment Protection Agency to develop the local air quality model. The model will support consideration of the emissions contributions from various vehicle types on air quality and help identify and test potential options for Dundee’s LEZ.
Funding secured through the Air Quality Fund is supporting the collection of traffic data and the development of a traffic model to support the design of the LEZ. This will be carried out in coming months and will provide essential information for consideration of options.
A recent survey carried out by the British Lung Foundation showed that people in Dundee support the introduction of a low emission zone in the city. The council is expected to publish details about their plans for the low emission zone soon.
