COUNCIL bosses have launched a consultation looking at the second phase of Glasgow’s Low Emission Zone.

Views will be sought on the zone’s geographical boundary, enforcement dates and temporary local exemptions – as well as how it might influence people’s future transport choices.

Glasgow’s LEZ affects local service buses only at present, however its second phase, expected to be enforced from December 31, 2022, will apply to all vehicles driving into the city centre, including private cars.

A grace period will be considered for individuals whose vehicle is registered at a residential property within the zone.

Anna Richardson, City Convener for Carbon Reduction and Sustainability, said: “The introduction of Glasgow’s Low Emission Zone shows our resolute determination to tackle air pollution in the city centre and beyond.

“Given that our LEZ will affect all vehicles by the end of 2022, I’d urge as many people as possible to take part in the consultation.”

The Low Emission Zone Consultation is open until March 29 and the online survey can be accessed through the council’s Consultation Hub webpage.
