Like many areas across the country, we have illegal levels of air pollution on local roads across Greater Manchester. Poor air quality affects everyone’s health, particularly the most vulnerable people in society: deprived communities, children, elderly people and those with chronic conditions like asthma, heart disease, stroke and some cancers. It contributes to nearly 1,200 premature deaths in GM every year.
By upgrading your vehicles to electric you will be helping to reduce air pollution across our city-region.
Clean Air Zone
Greater Manchester is working with government to deliver a new Clean Air Plan by July 2022. The first phase of the Greater Manchester Clean Air Zone will not go ahead on 30 May 2022. But £120m in government funding to help affected people upgrade to compliant vehicles will remain to support the implementation of a new Plan.
