The Government has not made an assessment of the potential effect of Birmingham’s Clean Air Zone on people’s health. This is a matter for the local authority as they are best placed to assess the impact of local decisions on the local population. A national assessment of the impact of the measures presented in the 2017 UK Plan for Tackling Roadside Nitrogen Dioxide Concentrations, including Clean Air Zones, is set out in the Technical Report published alongside the Plan.
