The Greater Manchester Mayor's Plan would see a 493sq mile charging zone introduced across all of Greater Manchester districts and would operate 24 hours a day, seven days a week. The Clean Air Zone created through the plan would see vans, buses, coaches, taxis, private hire vehicles, minibuses and heavy goods vehicles that do not meet emission standards paying a daily charge to travel in the Zone.
Trafford Conservatives have had concerns over the Plan since it first began to emerge, particularly due to the scale of the proposed charging zone and the impact of the charges on small businesses, jobs, community groups, schools and Taxi trade to name a few. As the signage for the Plan started to emerge on roads across Greater Manchester and more residents and business owners have become aware we are asking for your views of the charges.
Trafford has not breached any clean air targets since 2016.
