Safe Streets Consultation

Clean Air Plan Consultation

Views are sought on Greater Manchester’s Clean Air Plans to reduce harmful air pollution on our local roads.

Government has instructed Greater Manchester to introduce a charging Clean Air Zone right across all ten local authority areas, including Tameside. Some vehicles that don’t meet emissions standards will have to pay a daily charge to drive in and around the zone. That includes buses, coaches, heavy goods vehicles, taxis, private hire, vans, and minibuses. Private cars and motorbikes are not affected.

To help local people, businesses and organisations prepare, Greater Manchester is asking for more than £150 million of government funding to support upgrades to cleaner, compliant vehicles. Those who upgrade before the Clean Air Zone is introduced in 2022 would not have to pay a daily charge.

Find out more now and fill out the questionnaire at before 23:59 on 3 December.

Clean Air Zone

Minimum Licensing Standards consultation

Minimum Licensing Standards are being proposed for taxi and private hire services in Tameside, as part of Greater Manchester’s plans to make sure every journey is safer and more reliable.

The proposals could help put local operators ahead of out-of-town services as they will help give customers the confidence they are using a high-quality, safer and more reliable service, with high environmental and accessibility standards.

A public consultation runs until midnight on 3 December with passengers’ views sought. Find out more and have your say at:
