This report presents findings of research carried out as part of a review of low traffic neighbourhood (LTN) schemes introduced in areas across England since March 2020.

LTN schemes seek to remove or substantially reduce through motor traffic from an area or neighbourhood. 

The research focuses on:

  • how LTN schemes were introduced
  • the views of local communities affected
  • emerging evidence of impacts

The research comprises a review of existing literature and primary data collection with local authorities, stakeholder groups and residents. It forms part of DfT’s review of LTN schemes.
