A report that set out the progress that has been made following the Government’s response to Greater Manchester’s Outline Business Case to tackle Nitrogen Dioxide Exceedances at the Roadside, and the implications for the 10 Greater Manchester  local authorities in relation to the schedule of work and statutory consultation on the Clean Air Plan was considered on 4 February 2020 by the Cabinet.
