Time is running out to have your say on plans to reduce harmful air pollution on our local roads. The Greater Manchester Clean Air Plan consultation closes on Thursday 3 December 2020.
Government has instructed Greater Manchester to introduce a charging Clean Air Zone right across all 10 local authority areas, including Manchester Gorton.
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 proposing a number of Government funded schemes 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
