A Clean Air Zone for Greater Manchester

We need to clean up the air we all breathe. Air pollution damages our health and plays a part in thousands of deaths every year.

Greater Manchester has been directed by government to introduce a Clean Air Zone. The most polluting commercial vehicles would have to pay a charge to travel in the Zone. We are asking for more than £150m government funding for local businesses to move to cleaner vehicles and avoid paying a daily charge.

You can see the proposals and give your views on key elements now, during a public consultation.

What is air pollution?

You can't always see it, but air pollution is all around us. It comes from many sources and can be very damaging to our health.

We can breathe harmful gases and tiny particles deep into our lungs. Some of the smallest particles may also pass into our bloodstreams.

By learning more about air pollution you can help tackle it and protect your health.
