Implementation of traffic management schemes, including Low-Traffic Neighbourhoods, is a matter for local authorities. The Department has made no such assessment.

No ambulance trust has raised concerns with the Department about access or response times in such schemes. In addition, data obtained by Cycling UK shows that no such schemes had been implemented without the knowledge of the relevant ambulance trust and that no trust had identified delays to emergency response times resulting from schemes.
