The Greater Manchester Clean Air Zone will not go live on 30 May 2022 as originally planned. 

Greater Manchester is now working with government to deliver, by 1 July 2022, a new Clean Air Plan for Greater Manchester that tackles the serious public health issue of poor air quality, but which protects jobs and businesses across the city-region.   

The new Greater Manchester Clean Air Plan will need to deliver compliance with legal limits for Nitrogen Dioxide as soon as possible and by 2026 at the latest.

Funding for HGVs, including small businesses, and buses remains open to support people to upgrade and help deliver improved air quality.
