  • Paths for All - Community Active Travel Grants

    Created: 23/06/2018

    The Community Active Travel Grants fund has reopened. Grants are available for communities to develop, deliver and promote their own community led active travel projects including to travel by car less. Expressions of interest must be submitted by 6 July 2018. 

    The grant aims to empower communities to make changes to paths in their area that will make it easier for people to make everyday journeys by active travel such as cycling and walking. They will give priority to projects that improve paths so it’s easier for people to use them and be more physically active; show people where active travel routes are; provide opportunities and encourage people in communities to work together. The grant will fund active travel routes to schools, to places of work, other popular places within towns and routes that help connect communities. Funding can be used to:

    • Develop new paths and upgrade existing paths making them more suitable for active travel
    • Hire a contractor, plant and machinery
    • Purchase tools and equipment that volunteers can use to maintain active travel routes within their communities
    • Install signage and way markers to promote active travel routes
    • Produce new leaflets or promotional materials focusing on active travel routes
    • Produce interpretation panels that promote active travel routes 


    Next deadline: 6th July 2018
