It is for local authorities to gather relevant data as part of the development of traffic management schemes, which may include local traffic count and travel demand data.

The Department has published the Active Travel Toolkit which provides advice to local authorities on developing walking and cycling schemes, including advice on travel demand management plans. The Department has also published additional Network Management Duty guidance for local authorities on managing their road networks to provide measures to support active travel. Both are available free on the Department’s website.
