This department does not hold this information. Local authorities are key to achieving improvements in air quality and we have issued ministerial directions to 61 local authorities with persistent NO2 exceedances. In addition local authorities have statutory duties to review and assess local air quality, declare Air Quality Management Areas and put in place action plans to improve air quality locally.
