Sustrans have reopened applications for funding through their Places for Everyone programme for new and continuing active travel infrastructure projects.
Funded by the Scottish Government, Places for Everyone aims to create safer, more attractive, healthier, and inclusive places by increasing and diversifying the number of trips made by walking, wheeling, or cycling for everyday journeys.
The Places for Everyone fund is now open to Concept project applications, which are those in the first stages of delivering a high-quality active travel infrastructure, serving to define the scope of a project, its desired outcomes and helping to develop a final project concept design.
Both new and existing partners, big and small, are invited to apply for funding, from large statutory organisations like local authorities to smaller community organisations and development trusts.
Sustrans can award 100% of design costs and 70% of construction costs and will work with applicants to identify any match funding needed. All Places for Everyone partners can also look forward to receiving tailored support and guidance from Sustrans to ensure every project achieves the best possible outcome.
The deadline for Concept applications is 25 August 2022, and more information can be found on the Sustrans website: https://www.showcase-sustrans.org.uk/news/applications-now-open-for-places-for-everyone-funding/?cn-reloaded=1&cn-reloaded=1
