LEZ Funding Assistance

Glasgow's city centre Low Emission Zone is being phased in to give everyone the chance to prepare:

  • Phase 1 was introduced in December 2018, and applies to local service buses only
  • Phase 2 will apply to all vehicles (unless exempt) and will be enforced from 1 June 2023

Our Phase 2 scheme design proposes that zone residents will be granted an additional year to comply with the required vehicle emission requirements. This means that enforcement would not start until 1 June 2024. The vehicle must be registered to a residential address within the LEZ zone area to qualify for this grace period.

Grant Funding Availability

The Scottish Government committed through the 2018 Programme for Government to help those who will have most difficulty preparing for the introduction of Low Emission Zones in the four cities of Glasgow, Edinburgh, Dundee and Aberdeen. 

Full details of all current Scottish Government grant funding availability (and to register for future rounds where appropriate) can be found on the national Low Emission Zone website.

Other, related grants and loans funded by Transport Scotland and managed by the Energy Saving Trust (EST), can be found on the EST website
