LEZ Funding Support

Glasgow's LEZ is being phased in to give everyone the chance to prepare:

  • Phase 1 (buses only) was introduced on 31 December 2018
  • Phase 2 (all vehicles) commenced enforcement on 1 June 2023
  • Enforcement for zone residents will start on 1 June 2024. The vehicle must be registered to a residential address within the LEZ zone area to qualify for this grace period.

Funding Support

LEZ Support Fund:

In this financial year (2023-24), the Scottish Government made available £5 million through the LEZ Support Fund.

The Fund offered cash incentives and Travel Better credits, if non-compliant vehicles were removed from Scotland's roads.

Administered by Energy Saving Trust, the programme is means-tested and offers help to those most affected by the introduction of LEZs. It provides people and micro-businesses with financial support to travel more sustainably and meet the established air quality standards.

On 14 February 2024, the Low Emission Zone Support Fund and Travel Better Fund closed to new applications for this financial year. Previously submitted applications will continue to be processed and funding offered on a first-come, first-served basis, subject to availability. You can visit the Energy Saving Trust website for more information.
