GM Clean Air Zone: Helping the city to breathe?
6th December 2021, 2:34 pm
All small business owners are welcome to join us, and it’s free to attend our monthly seminars. (We usually hold our sessions in person, in Manchester city centre, but we’re holding this event online.)
About this seminar:
On 30 May 2022, Greater Manchester will introduce a GM-wide Clean Air Zone to improve air quality across the city region.
The levels of pollution in the city region breach legal requirements and to remedy this, this policy will implement daily charges on the owners of any commercial vehicles that do not meet the latest emissions standards.
Awareness of this policy is low, as is awareness of schemes that will be introduced to provide financial support to businesses.
In this seminar, we’ll provide an overview of the challenges that the city must face as well as the rollout of the scheme. It will also provide a forum for businesses, policymakers and academics to discuss the problems and solutions to air quality in the UK’s cities.
