Low Emission Zone Scheme content

We want people in Dundee to enjoy

  • cleaner air
  • better health
  • a more pleasant and attractive city.

Air pollution is harmful to health, especially for

  • the young
  • the elderly
  • those with heart and lung conditions.

Dundee has made progress in reducing levels of air pollution, however there are still streets where nitrogen dioxide (NO2) is at levels that exceed set objective levels so we need to take more action.

In Dundee (and most UK cities), road traffic is the main source of NO2.
