Active Travel England (ATE) have one key objective: ensuring that 50% of trips in our towns and cities are walked, wheeled or cycled by 2030.
They plan to hit the ground running this autumn / winter, and have said:
‘Like anyone with a big target to hit, we need to work with the willing and that means sharing our faith and the majority of our funding with councils that have the highest levels of leadership, ambition and ability to deliver.’
In September, ATE will begin the process of inviting bids from local authorities for around £500m of grant funding to support both capital and revenue schemes nationwide, across a multi-year settlement period 2022/23 to 2024/25.
