Good luck with that one. Are there enough low emission buses, taxis,
delivery vehicles, and so on to make it even remotely practical?


That was my first thought (and similar to earlier discussions about
similar zones in Central Oxford).

We have to assume that public sector vehicles (not just emergency ones,
but waste/litter collection, fixing streetlights, etc) will be exempt?

That just leaves similar vehicles operating in the private sector.
Hybrid Openreach and builders' vans, anyone?

[To be fair, BT claim to have been testing some low emissions vans for a
year now, but they would say that, wouldn't they]
