The Department has received no response from the police to its new guidance on setting local speed limits.

As explained in the Department's decision letter following public consultation, published in conjunction with the guidance, the Association of Chief Police Officers was represented on a stakeholder group which assisted the Department in compiling the new guidance. A summary of the police responses to the public consultation draft of the guidance is provided in section 8 of the Department's decision letter.
