Our plan to clean up Greater Manchester’s air

We want to tackle air pollution on local roads in a way that protects our health, jobs, livelihoods and businesses.  

Greater Manchester leaders believe that this is possible through investment in cleaner vehicles, without a charging Clean Air Zone.  

We’re currently developing an investment-led Clean Air Plan for our region.
