Clean Air Campaign

Research has shown that St John’s Road in Corstorphine was the second most polluted road in Scotland in 2017.

Air pollution from traffic fumes has a devastating impact on health, especially on children and people with existing health problems. Friends of the Earth estimates that air pollution is responsible for over 2500 early deaths every year in Scotland and costs the Scottish economy over £1.1 billion annually.

Setting up ‘Low Emission Zones’ (LEZs) in towns and cities can make a real difference in reducing vehicle emissions and improving the health of people growing up in polluted areas.

We the undersigned welcome Edinburgh City Council’s consultation into establishing a LEZ in our city, but we call on the Council to ensure that any future Low Emissions Zone will cover Corstorphine, Murrayfield and Queensferry Road.
