The charge was to be £2 (€2.40), levied no more than once per day on any single vehicle. If a vehicle were to cross both cordons, or to cross either cordon a number of times during the day, the charge would still only be applied once that day. In this sense, the scheme resembles an entry permit scheme. Arrangements for payment of the charge and enforcement of the scheme by ANPR cameras would be similar to those in place for the London congestion charging scheme.
A number of exemptions were proposed: emergency service vehicles, buses, powered two-wheelers, licensed taxis, and vehicles belonging to an approved ‘city car club’ scheme. Approved recovery vehicles were also to be exempt.An exemption added at a late stage by the Council was that residents of the administrative area of the City of Edinburgh who live outside the outer cordon would not be liable for the outer cordon charge. It was justified by the Council on the grounds of fairness for all Edinburgh residents. However, it gave rise to considerable concern from residents of neighbouring Council areas.
