Help shape the final Greater Manchester Clean Air Plan now

13th October 2020, 4:09 pm

You can give your views on plans to reduce harmful air pollution on our local roads now. Greater
Manchester is holding an eight-week long consultation on its Clean Air Plan proposals.

Government has instructed Greater Manchester to introduce a charging Clean Air Zone right across
all ten local authority areas.

Some vehicles that don’t meet emissions standards will have to pay a daily charge to drive in and
around the zone. That includes buses, coaches, heavy goods vehicles, taxis, private hire, vans, and
minibuses. Private cars and motorbikes are not affected.

To help local people, businesses and organisations prepare, Greater Manchester is asking for more
than £150 million of government funding to support upgrades to cleaner, compliant vehicles. Those
who upgrade before the Clean Air Zone is introduced in 2022 would not have to pay a daily charge.

You can give your views on key elements of the Greater Manchester-wide Clean Air Zone proposals
now:

• The proposed Clean Air Zone boundary
• Proposed daily charges
• Proposed discounts and exemptions
• Proposed government funding support package to support local businesses
