Low Emission Zone: CEC consultation

Edinburgh Council is consulting on a low emission zone: consultation is at https://consultationhub.edinburgh.gov.uk/sfc/low-emission-zone

CEC seek views on the following proposed aspects of the Edinburgh LEZ:

  • city centre zone boundary
  • 2 -year grace period
  • local exemptions and considerations for impacted groups

CEC also seeks to understand knowledge of LEZs and LEZ related support funds and those available for other sustainable transport options. The consultation period is running for 12 weeks, from the 28th June 2021 and closing on 20th September 2021.

Responses, comments or feedback can also be emailed to low.emission.zone@edinburgh.gov.uk,

or posted to: Low Emission Zone, Waverley Court G3, East Market Street, Edinburgh, EH8 8BG

Depending on the volume of feedback received, it is hoped that a final LEZ scheme can be formally published towards the end of 2021 and agreed by the Council and Scottish Ministers early in 2022 before it is implemented in May 2022.

Leith low-traffic neighbourhood consultations (CEC’s actual consultation)

Hot on the heels of the last post, CEC is running a consultation as well as AECOM. LHNCC’s web-weaver guesses (but cannot promise) that Edinburgh Council will be more interested in responses to its own consultation.

Follow this link (https://consultationhub.edinburgh.gov.uk/sfc/low-traffic-neighbourhoods/) to access CEC’s Leith LTN consultation.

There are also workshops – register via Eventbrite as follows.
