Dundee Civic Trust welcomes the steps proposed by Dundee City Council to establish a Low Emission Zone in central Dundee. The Council is to be congratulated on moving forward with plans which will help to counteract the ‘climate emergency’ declared by the Scottish Government. It is a major step forward in improving air quality in the city centre. We support the proposal for the area within the Inner Ring Road, but probably not including, in the restricted area, the Inner Ring Road itself. If it were to be included, affected traffic would surely find routes through nearby residential areas.
