Buses could be banned form parts of Brighton city centre unless they meet rigourous emissions standards under a council plan.

It would mean only buses meeting the guidelines can enter the zone covering the North Street and Western Road “bus corridor” between Old Steine and Palmeira Square.

Brighton and Hove City Council officers believe the restricted area would help to clampdown on harmful emissions in a city which has high air pollution levels, before hefty European fines are introduced.

But do you think it is a good idea? Does Brighton need a low emissions zone?

Should it include all traffic? Or is it a waste of time?
