Approval of SCR Proposal to the Department of Transport for Emergency Active Travel Funding New!

Decision maker:  SCR - Transport Board

Decision due:   3 Jul 2020

Lead officer:  Mark Lynam

Notice of proposed decision first published: 01/06/2020

This decision will be taken under urgency procedures.

Reason for urgency:
On 27th May SCR was informed of the process to secure the indicative allocation of funding from government for the first tranche of SCR’s Emergency Active Travel funding of £1.437m. SCR is required to complete a pro forma to the Department for Transport no later than Friday 5th June. The Department will review proposals and confirm funding (timing tbc). Once we have received confirmation of the funding the Department has indicated the following ‘If work has not started within four weeks of receiving your allocation under this tranche of funding, or has not been completed within eight weeks of starting, the Department will reserve the right to claw the funding back by adjusting downwards a future grant payment to your authority’.

Anticipated restriction: Open  -
