Parking Permit Diesel Surcharge Consultation

Through the Council's Parking Action Plan, we are reviewing parking permits in Edinburgh with the aim to improve air quality and enhance quality of life.

In the past, diesel was considered to be more environmentally-friendly than petrol, as it produces less CO2 per mile. Fuel duty and road tax changed to encourage people to buy diesel cars to cut their carbon footprint. As a result, the number of diesel cars on Britain’s roads increased from around 7% in 1994 to around 40% today.

Building Scotland’s Low Emission Zones (LEZs)

Following the May 2017 local elections, several local authorities in major Scottish cities have made positive statements around LEZs, and we are encouraged to see the strong political will across local government to support improvements to air quality. Our Programme for Government committed to introducing LEZs into Aberdeen, Dundee, Edinburgh and Glasgow between 2018 and 2020, and you may have read or heard in the media that the first LEZ will be put in place in Glasgow by the end of 2018.

The Building Scotland’s Low Emission Zones consultation paper sets out the proposed arrangements and options to deliver a consistent approach to designing, building and managing LEZs in Scotland.  We would therefore invite your community council, and residents in your area, to respond to the consultation at https://consult.scotland.gov.uk/transport-scotland/building-scotlands-low-emission-zones/ or by emailing your comments to This email address is being protected from spambots.

The consultation will close at 23:59 on 28 November 2017.
