Sign our open letter to Andy Burnham

Dear Mayor Burnham,

Congratulations on your re-election. We are looking forward to working with you to help tackle illegal and harmful air pollution in Greater Manchester, which is damaging people’s lungs right across the region and limiting the health of future generations. 

We are writing to you as people who live in Manchester, clean air campaigners and organisations, alongside Asthma UK and the British Lung Foundation, as we are very concerned about this invisible killer and to ask you to publish more ambitious clean air plans in your first 100 days?

 

A great step forward for Manchester’s ’s lungs

We want to congratulate you and your team for your current proposals to roll out the country’s largest clean air zone (CAZ) outside London. We recognise the leadership this has taken in working with the 10 authorities across the region. When the CAZ is launched it could be a gamechanger for the city’s toxic air, helping protect future generations from harm and protect thousands of people who live with lung conditions.
