£10 per day “Clean air charge”

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone , hope Christmas was good to you all.

 

Not sure if many know about the Greater Manchester clean air zone charge? And it’s the WHOLE of the zone not just the city centre. From 2023 any pre 2016 diesel van, pickup, motor home, horse box  will be charged from £10 per day when used, business or private. That’s an average of 2.5-3k per year on running costs per vehicle. Please could everyone join the current FB group that are trying to get the scheme cancelled. Nothing may come of it but there’s no harm trying. Any input on the page would be greatly appreciated.

How long before this is rolled out everywhere once they see it as another nice simple earner?

Looking at the area that 'zone' covers, it appears to include the M6 and the M62? Without wishing to dig through the paperwork, has anyone established whether the local authority is therefore intending to try and charge for use of motorways?

I got caught by one recently whist visiting Bath. Tossers. I didn't see any signs, apparently it's only been active since March too.

Portsmouths  ̶c̶a̶s̶h̶ ̶m̶a̶c̶h̶i̶n̶e̶  clean air zone is now active, funny thing is the air quality in Pompey was already very good. Mick Dundee lives there and he reckons it's made traffic worse because of the miles folk will drive to circumnavigate the charges.

Hi, no charge on motorways, but in Bolton you can’t get to the motorways without passing a camera just before every entry junction

I can easily add the charge on the quote/job for my tipper vehicle, but my pickup is my only other means of transport. So nipping to the shop etc or picking the grandkids up at weekend is going to cost 🤣

Exactly, some people think it won’t effect them but if a decorator for example, spends a week at your house working, and travels in a non compliant van, that’s another £50 on your bill at least.
