In Greater Manchester, we need to clean up the air we all breathe.

Dirty air from road transport can seriously damage our health and plays a part in thousands of deaths every year. Along with other major cities across the country, Greater Manchester needs to reduce air pollution to legal levels as quickly as possible.

The 10 local councils in Greater Manchester are developing a Clean Air Plan to tackle this major risk to our health. The proposals include a Clean Air Zone, alongside major government funding to clean up the region’s most-polluting vehicles.

We’d like your views on our proposals now, so that we can shape the right plans for our region together.

You can respond to the online survey on our Clean Air Plan proposals or email between Monday 13 May and midnight on Sunday 30 June 2019.
