All residents are welcome to submit comments to the Greater Manchester Clean Air Zone consultation:
Summary of consultation:
Greater Manchester needs to take action to improve air quality now and for future generations. Air pollution is linked to a range of very serious health conditions and contributes to early deaths.
Government has directed us to introduce a Greater Manchester-wide Clean Air Zone. It will bring harmful nitrogen dioxide (NO₂) levels on local roads within legal limits in as short a time as possible. We’re also asking for more than £150m government funding support to encourage local businesses to upgrade to cleaner vehicles.
We have listened to residents and businesses while developing the Greater Manchester Clean Air Plan. We are now consulting on key elements of the proposals, including the proposed Clean Air Zone boundary, daily charges for non-compliant vehicles, discounts and exemptions, and support funding.
Please read more about the proposals and take part in the consultation between Thursday 8 October and 23:59hrs Thursday 3 December 2020.
