Greater Manchester's
Clean Air Zone

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. The pandemic has reduced air pollution, but not enough to tackle harmful emissions in the long term.

That’s why, like other areas, Greater Manchester has been instructed by government to introduce a charging Clean Air Zone. It’s expected to launch on 30 May 2022. Private cars and motorbikes will not be affected, but some types of the most polluting commercial and passenger vehicles will have to pay a daily charge to travel in the Zone.

Financial support will be available for eligible Greater Manchester people, businesses and organisations to move to cleaner vehicles. Upgrading to a compliant vehicle before the Zone is introduced means you won’t have to pay a daily charge.

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.
