Do you care about the air we all breathe? Many roads in Greater Manchester have high levels of air pollution, which is harmful to everyone's health and linked to early deaths.

Greater Manchester local authorities are working together to develop a Clean Air Plan to tackle harmful nitrogen dioxide (NO2) on Greater Manchester's local road network.

We've put together a series of measures that would help us clean up some of Greater Manchester's most polluting vehicles. They include:

  • A Greater Manchester-wide Clean Air Zone which the most polluting buses, coaches, HGVs, vans, taxis and private hire vehicles would pay a daily penalty to drive in.
  • A multi-million pound funding package to support local businesses and sole traders to upgrade to cleaner vehicles.
  • Trebling the number of electric vehicle public charging points across the region.

Whether you live in Greater Manchester or not, if you're interested in our proposals - or could be affected by them - we want to hear from you.

Later this year, we will be holding a statutory public consultation on the detailed proposals. But, it's really important we hear from as many people as possible now to help us come up with the right Clean Air Plan for Greater Manchester.
