To ask the Secretary of State for Transport, how much of the £2 billion in funding announced on 9 May 2020 for walking and cycling will be allocated to Staffordshire local authority.
8 June 2020
The first part of the £2 billion to be released will be a £225 million Emergency Active Travel Fund in the current financial year. The first tranche of this will be released as soon as possible provided local authorities submit suitably ambitious plans to the Department, and the second tranche will be released later in the summer. Indicative allocations to local authorities have been published on gov.uk. Staffordshire has been indicatively allocated £366,000 for tranche one and £1,466,000 for tranche two: its final allocations will depend on the quality of the plans it submits to the Department. Decisions on the remainder of the £2 billion will be a matter for the next Spending Review.
