Stakeholders invited to have their say on Scotland’s Low Emission Zones
Transport Scotland is hosting a series of workshops to showcase options for low emission zone regulations and guidance.
Stakeholders are invited to give their feedback on the options and take part in group tasks and discussions.
The Scottish Government has committed to introducing low emission zones (LEZs) In Scotland’s four biggest cities by 2020.
The workshops are being held next month in Glasgow, Aberdeen and Dundee.
Dr Stephen Thomson, Head of Air Quality at Transport Scotland, said:
“We have previously consulted on the general principles behind Scotland’s low emission zones. Now, we would value people’s views on the options for regulations and guidance which will help shape how LEZs may be operated by a local authority.
“The Scottish Government has a clear vision for Scotland’s air quality to be the best in Europe. The government’s commitment to introducing low emission zones across our four biggest cities will help make our transport system cleaner, greener and healthier. This is yet another opportunity to have a say in their development.”
Our recently launched LEZ website hosts official information to support businesses and members of the public in preparation for their introduction.
