The UK plan for tackling nitrogen dioxide (NO2) concentrations, published in July 2017, is supported by a technical report. The technical report presents the evidence used to develop and assess the plan in addressing levels of NO2 across local authorities in the UK, including assessing the role of clean air zones. The plan and technical report are available at: https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/air-quality-plan-for-nitrogen-dioxide-no2-in-uk-2017
