Work towards a Low Emission Zone (LEZ) scheme in Edinburgh is said to be "well underway".
A report to the City of Edinburgh Council’s Transport and Environment Committee recommends a LEZ applying to buses should be introduced in 2020 - this would aim to ensure bus operators are making the necessary improvements to their fleets to reduce emissions and address air pollution issues.
The Council is seeking to implement a wider LEZ using regulations and guidance currently under public consultation by Transport Scotland - these regulations, which will address the operation, enforcement and penalties of LEZs, are not expected to be complete until the end of 2020.
