Manchester Clean Air Zone

Phase 1 of The Clean Air Zone planned for Greater Manchester comes into force on 30 May 2022 (with phase 2 scheduled for 1 June 2023). Phase 1 covers:

Non-compliant HGVs


Coaches without a temporary exemption

Greater Manchester-licensed taxis and private hire vehicles without a temporary exemption

Taxis and private hire vehicles licensed outside Greater Manchester

If you are caught by the zoning you should check whether business vehicles (and in due course) employees vehicles might be caught by the zoning and whether you are eligible to apply for financial support, or a daily charge discount.

Daily charges range from £7.50 up to £60 depending on the type of vehicle and age, with fixed penalty notices to be applied for non-payment.
