Active Travel Fund - phase 2

The Department for Transport's Active Travel Fund supports plans to reallocate road space to cyclists and pedestrians and create an environment that is safer for walking and cycling.


The second phase of funding will enable authorities to install more permanent measures to encourage walking and cycling and the County Council submitted a funding bid to the Department for Transport during the summer of 2020.  During November 2020, the County Council received an award of £2.35m which includes £450k of revenue funding.


Proposed schemes/programmes will involve full consultation with local residents and other stakeholders and details can be found on the County Council’s  website.
