Owners of diesel cars in Edinburgh could be forced to pay more for parking permits in a bid to reduce harmful emissions in the city.
The city council is holding a consultation on the proposal between now and 28 January. It’s estimated that 8,000 diesel car owners in Edinburgh could be affected by the charge.
It follows a similar scheme in Islington, which charges owners of diesel cars an extra £96 a year to park outside their home.
Glasgow is set to become the first city in Scotland to introduce a low emission zone in 2018.
