The Council and democracy Climate Change Action Plan - Progress Update Q1 Apr to Jun 2021

Workstream #2 - Travel and transport

2.1    There are seven electric refuse collection vehicles now operational. The delivery schedule for the remaining vehicles has been delayed due to manufacturing delays as a result of Covid-19.
2.2    The re-procurement of our vehicle leasing contract completed in April 2021 and will allow work to decarbonise our operational fleet. Nine new fully-electric vehicles have been deployed this quarter across Bereavement Services, Highways, Trading Standards and Facilities Management - all replacing diesel vehicles.
2.3    A Senior Project Manager (six-month secondment) leading on Sustainable Travel was appointed in April 2021 to lead on this action and 2.8.
2.4    Two online consultations were completed for the Wythenshawe Active Travel and two for the City Centre Active Travel scheme. Both have now closed.
2.5    Manchester City Council is working closely with TfGM to develop a 5-year pipeline of transport infrastructure investment to deliver priorities under the Greater Manchester Transport Strategy 2040. This pipeline will form the basis of a negotiated funding settlement with government as part of the £4.2bn Intra-city Transport Fund. TfGM are leading negotiations with government, with MCC and other Greater Manchester Local Authorities feeding in.  
2.7    Manchester Climate Change Partnership met on 20 May 2021 and a report on aviation was discussed. The report included progress against the aviation commitments in the Manchester Climate Change Framework 2020-25 and key points for inclusion in the new Framework 2.0 document, to be completed by March 2022.
