Sussex Low Emissions Zones

- Local authority experience

Sussex Air Quality Partnership



Sussex Low Emission Strategy

The strategy is a combination of initiatives and policies to reduce emissions, which include:

  • Linked Air Quality Action Plans

  • Linked car clubs, cycle initiatives

  • Closer working relationships with Counties on Public Health and Transport.

  • Joint bids for funding: Clean Bus Technology Fund, ecostars

  • Sussex emissions mitigation and air quality planning guidance (2013)

  • SE England electric vehicle rapid charger network project (2014-15)

  • Joined-up LEZ projects


Sussex Low Emissions Zones: Storrington LEZ trial

  • Storrington is used as an (unwelcome) alternative to A27:

    • Village population of 4,600 people.

    • Around 19,000 vehicles passing through Storrington each day

    • 51% of this traffic passes straight through Storrington

    • 3% of vehicles are HGVs


Sussex Low Emissions Zones: Storrington LEZ trial

  • Horsham District Council’s Air Quality Action Plan for Storrington:

    • 20mph speed limit (rejected)

    • Traffic re-routing (rejected)

    • Improved signage (approved, but will not have a large impact)

    • Gating (rejected)

    • HGV physical restrictions (under consideration)

    • Low Emission Zone (under consideration)


Sussex Low Emissions Zones: Storrington LEZ trial

To help assess the most viable option of a Low Emission Zone without having to invest in a full solution, Siemens has offered to provide a pilot of its innovative new LEZ solution, GreenZone

  • With kind permission of Siemens plc


Sussex Low Emissions Zones: Storrington LEZ trial

  • The proposed pilot LEZ solution includes the following elements:

  • Automatic Number Plate Recognition cameras covering 4 sites

  • Transportable roadside cabinets

  • Low Emission Zone Enforcement Instation software

  • Customer User Interface for vehicle information

  • Secure hosting of all necessary IT infrastructure

  • Operations and maintenance

  • Consultancy work to provide modelling / data analysis

Sussex Low Emissions Zones: Brighton Bus LEZ

…..levels of nitrogen dioxide are double or treble EU and UK legal limits in some parts of the city covered by the AQMA


Sussex Low Emissions Zones: Brighton Bus LEZ

In June 2013 a resolution was passed by BHCC Committee instructing officers to investigate the development of a Low Emission Zone in central Brighton.

  • Key driver to enable Low Emission Zone:

  • £750,000 Clean Bus Technology Fund granted to BHCC and Brighton Buses has enabled an Bus LEZ to be established.

  • Retro-fit and earlier phasing out of older stock.

Sussex Low Emissions Zones: Brighton Bus LEZ

  • Key elements of the Low Emission Zone

    Euro 5 emission standard for buses entering the LEZ from 1 January 2015

  • Area extends along main route of Brighton Buses in North St, where 90% buses travel through.

  • Results in improved emissions across wider area and outside Brighton.

  • By upgrading buses to Euro V or/and retrofitting pre-existing CRT fitted buses with an SCR system designed to achieve the equivalent of Euro V NOx emissions, the NO2 will be reduced by circa 60%, reducing the NO2 emissions from 5g/km to 2g/km.
