star this property answer text <p>The UK meets legal limits for concentrations of all air pollutants, with the exception of nitrogen dioxide (NO<sub>2</sub>). Calculating peoples’ annual NO<sub>2</sub> exposure is not straightforward, because an individual’s exposure varies as they move about their daily life. The Government therefore does not hold estimates of the number of people exposed to NO<sub>2</sub> levels above legal limits.</p><p> </p><p>The vast majority of exceedances of the NO<sub>2</sub> limits occur at roadside locations within ten metres of the kerb. We are working with a number of local authorities to reduce roadside NO<sub>2</sub> concentrations, and our latest modelling indicates that 9% of the road links assessed exceeded NO<sub>2</sub> limits.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>The World Health Organisation guidelines do not form part of EU agreed targets for emissions or concentration reductions, and therefore will not be included in negotiations on the UK leaving the EU. The UK has met all legally binding EU limits for particulate matter (PM10 and PM2.5) since 2009.</p><p> </p><p> </p><p> </p><p>We are proposing to do more than the EU requires. In our Clean Air Strategy, we have set out a new goal to halve the number of people living where concentrations of fine particulate matter (PM<sub>2.5</sub>) are above the World Health Organisation guideline level of 10 micrograms per cubic metre by 2025. We are the first major developed economy to set goals based on WHO guidelines.</p><p> </p> more like this
