Monitoring and evaluating the LEZ

Objectives and monitoring

What we aim to achieve with the LEZ

We will monitor and evaluate the LEZ against objectives which were agreed by the Council’s Transport and Environment Committee.

This includes how much the LEZ contributes towards:

  • meeting the air quality objectives set out in Section 87(1) of the Environment Act (1995)
  • reducing emissions to meet Part 1 of the Climate Change (Scotland) Act 2009

We will also measure the impact of traffic across the city as driver’s change their behaviour. We will aim reduce the impacts and support people to change the way they travel.

We will measure the number of people and businesses that receive LEZ support funding.

We will regularly check that the LEZ is working towards these goals we have set for air quality, climate change and traffic.
