As part of the Government’s strategy to improve air quality across the UK, discouraging the use of older, more polluting, vehicles is key. The goal is to reduce the number of areas in the UK where air pollution breaches legal limits, and city by city, we are helping local, regional and transport authorities kick-start their ‘Clean Air Strategies’.

The Scottish Government has outlined plans to have four Low Emission Zones (LEZ) in operation by 2020, with the first established in Glasgow at the end of 2018.
