Direction under the Environment Act 1995 requiring Oldham Council
to produce a feasibility study to identify the option which will
deliver compliance with the requirement to meet legal limits for
nitrogen dioxide in the shortest possible time. Oldham Council
complied with this Direction by the production of a feasibility
study submitted to the Government's Joint Air Quality Unit (JAQU)
in July 2018. Oldham Council is also required to address the

the Target Determination exercise. Oldham Council confirmed in its
supplemental plan that the exceedance identified in Oldham was
being addressed as part of the Greater Manchester plan. This has
been acknowledged by Government.
