The Greater Manchester-wide charging Clean Air Zone is due to be introduced on 30 May 2022. Vehicles that do not meet emissions standards (non-compliant vehicles) will be charged to drive in the Clean Air Zone. There will be some discounts and exemptions.
You will need to pay a £60 daily charge to travel in the Zone if:
You own an N2 or N3 category vehicle – e.g. an articulated or rigid HGV, flatbed lorry, two-axle lorry, motorcaravan with an HGV tax classification (over 3.5t) or motorised horsebox (over 3.5t).
It has a Euro V or earlier diesel engine (typically registered before 2013).
We want to support affected vehicle owners in Greater Manchester to upgrade to cleaner, compliant vehicles and not have to pay a charge. Answer a few questions to see if your vehicle is included in the Zone and eligible for a discount or exemption, and/or funding.Vehicle and Financial Support Checker
Greater Manchester has £7.6m of government funding to help eligible businesses, organisations and people who own HGVs to move to cleaner, compliant vehicles.
Funding will not be available to replace or retrofit all non-compliant vehicles. It will initially be targeted to support micro-businesses, self-employed people, sole traders, charities, social enterprises, and private owners and registered keepers of a non-compliant vehicle. Subject to available funding, there will be a second round of funding open to small businesses, in addition to the vehicle owners above.
The Financial Support Scheme is open for HGV applications. Please apply as early as possible to have the best chance of being successful.Apply Now
You can apply for financial support to either retrofit or replace your vehicle. Applications are limited to a maximum of five vehicles per applicant, for a mix of vehicle types.
You may not be eligible for support to upgrade your vehicle from the Greater Manchester Financial Support Scheme.
If you are eligible, this does not guarantee a funding award. The available government funding will be targeted to support vehicle owners who need it the most to clean up the most polluting eligible vehicles.
