Here at Worcestershire County Council we are doing more to promote walking and cycling in the county than we ever have done before. Together with our partners we have submitted our bid for more than a million pounds from the Government’s Active Travel Scheme and we are investing further in to schemes that are set out in our Local Transport Plan.
On 9 May 2020, the Government announced £2 billion funding for walking and cycling, with the first £250 million to be made available immediately to local authorities as an emergency active travel fund to deliver measures to tackle COVID-19.
Details of the indicative funding allocations by local authority can be viewed at the GOV.UK - Emergency active travel fund: local transport authority allocations website (opens in a new window).
