Question

Would the fine(s) for breaching the limit value (plus maximum margin of tolerance) for annual NO2, if a time extension is granted, be similar to that for exceeding any of the EU limit values if no time extension is granted (eg £300m per annum)? If not, why not?

Any fine resulting from infraction proceedings for failure to meet EU limit values for NO2 would be a matter for the Government, not the GLA.
