Funding the changes needed for recovery

Government funding

The government has awarded local authorities funding to enable us to:

  • introduce temporary changes that help reopen the local economy safely
  • help increase the number of journeys completed by walking and cycling, so that everyone can enjoy the benefits to health, air quality and reduction in congestion.

Phase 1

We have been awarded £312,000 to introduce emergency measures that improve the safety and convenience of people who walk or cycle.

Phase 2

A further £1.1m will be available to continue with the programme subject to a successful first phase.

The measures will be delivered quickly using temporary materials such as barriers and planters to meet the government's expectations.
