Edinburgh Council — Consultation on Age Limitation of Taxis (Air Quality)

Deadline 02 June 2017

In recent months there has been significant media coverage about pollution levels in the UK. The main causes of pollution in towns and cities are Nitrogen Oxide and Nitrogen Dioxide (referred to as Nitrogen Oxides), which are produced in the emissions from petrol and diesel vehicles. Air quality in city centres is a major public health concern.

City of Edinburgh Council is now considering introducing an age limit for its licensed taxis and Private Hire Car (PHCs).
To find out more about the consultation and to submit your views of air quality and taxi licensing, see here.
The consultation runs until 2 June.
