Apr 2013 - Good response to "Low Emission Zone" plan

There has been a generally very positive response to Cllr Mark Wright's suggestion that Bristol implement a "Low Emission Zone" (LEZ) like the one in London, in order to drive down persistent air pollution levels in the City Centre.

Mark notes, "One thing that has emerged from my surveys, is that some people are mixing up the LEZ with a Congestion Charging Zone, which London also has one of. Anyone worried about this please note that a congestion charging zone is not the same as an LEZ. An LEZ would not affect any cars at all - it would only affect older buses and lorries - just the most polluting vehicles."
