Electric Vehicle (EV) charging infrastructure
is key driver of Greater Manchester (GM)’s ambitions for the
environment. EV charging is a core enabler of GM’s ambition
to be a carbon-neutral city region by 2038, and the proposals in
the Greater Manchester Outline Business Case to tackle Nitrogen
Dioxide Exceedances at the Roadside (GM Clean Air Plan) are
underpinned by encouraging GM businesses to switch to low and zero
emissions vehicles. As part of the public conversation last year on
the GM Clean Air Plan (GM CAP) proposals, the availability of
charging points was cited as a key barrier for businesses and
individuals in switching to an EV.
RESOLVED - That: the proposed site locations -
attached at Appendix 1 - identified for dedicated taxi chargers
ahead of engagement with the taxi trade be approved.
Option 1 - to approve site locations.
Option 2 - not to approve site locations.
