Find out more about the Low Emission Zones coming to Scotland this year

Edinburgh will join Aberdeen, Dundee and Glasgow this year in introducing Low Emission Zones.

We’ve previously written about the Low Emission Zone coming to the city centre, but here’s an explainer from Low Emission Zones Scotland on what they are aiming to achieve and how to prepare;


LEZs help to improve air quality, protect public health and encourage people to use more public transport and cleaner vehicles.

LEZs will be enforced from mid-2023 in Glasgow and from mid-2024 in Aberdeen, Dundee and Edinburgh. They will stop the most polluting vehicles from entering the zone. Any vehicles entering a zone must meet minimum emission standards or will face a fine, certain exemptions will apply.
