What Is The GM Clean Air Zone?
Most major cities up and down the UK are looking ways of becoming greener and cutting emissions. Manchester is one of them.
This means if you, or your company are making regular visits in to the upcoming Clean Air Zone you could be liable to a daily charge which is currently touted as;
- Buses, coaches and HGVs – £100 (from 2021)
- Taxis and private hire vehicles – £7.50 (from 2021)
- Vans and minibuses – £7.50 (from 2023)
If the daily penalty is not paid, a PCN payment of £120 is proposed which would be in addition to the original daily penalty.
This could obviously have a significant impact on a small business – particularly if you have a few vehicles regularly travelling into the zone.
