Description

Leicester has had an Air Quality Management Area in place since 2000, which covers about 3% of Leicester’s population. There remain widespread and substantial exceedances of the annual mean criterion for nitrogen dioxide. There is little evidence of a robust downward trend in levels; in fact in recent years the situation has deteriorated in some areas.

Currently, there is Government interest in a national framework for Low Emission Zones as a way forward: Leicester City Council has therefore been awarded funding under the 2012/13 round of the DEFRA Air Quality Grant Scheme to prepare a Business Case for a Low Emission Strategy.

Successful delivery of the project can be anticipated to inform a template for Councils across the UK in looking at LEZs. The contractor expected to ensure that the methodology and approach are captured in a transferable Roadmap that can be used by other Councils.
