Decision details

Electric Vehicle Charging Infrastructure for Taxi and Private Hires

Decision Maker: Deputy Chief Executive – Helen Lockwood

Decision status: Recommendations Approved

Is Key decision?: Yes

Is subject to call in?: Yes


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.

Reasons for the decision:

Option 1 - to approve site locations.
Option 2 - not to approve site locations.

Alternative options considered:
