Consultation description

We want to know what measures you think will be effective in reducing roadside NO2 levels in 33 local authorities in England. We’re also interested in how these measures should be assessed.

We have directed 33 English local authorities to carry out studies into reducing nitrogen dioxide air pollution in their areas. The studies should identify whether there are any measures they can take to reduce NO2 air pollution in their areas in the shortest time possible.

Your views will help inform the local authority studies, which need to be submitted to the government by 31 July 2018. The government will consider the results, and will publish a supplement to the UK plan for tackling roadside nitrogen dioxide concentrations by 5 October 2018.
