Jan 2015 - Low Emission Zone Campaign

Lib Dem councillor Mark Wright is campaigning for a Low Emission Zone (LEZ) for Bristol, which would discourage old diesel buses and lorries coming into the city. Older diesel vehicles are a major contributor to air pollution. Poor air quality is a significant problem in the centre of Bristol which can have a damaging impact on the health of central area residents.

Mark has been calling on the Mayor for sometime to look into the feasibility of introducing an LEZ for Bristol. Despite warm words, progress seems disappointingly slow. Therefore, if you support the campaign, please sign the petition at:
