Local Sustainable Transport Fund

Brings together all documents relating to Local Sustainable Transport Fund.

The local transport white paper ‘Creating growth, cutting carbon’, published in January 2011, placed localism at the heart of the transport agenda in order to cut carbon emissions and create local growth.

A total of £560 million was originally made available through the Local Sustainable Transport Fund (LSTF) to enable the department to fund a number of high quality bids. Funding was topped up with a further £40 million to £600 million in 2012 to accommodate approval for a greater number of bids (with local contribution being provided by local authority partners). In total, the Department for Transport awarded funding to 96 packages to 77 authorities to deliver their schemes between 2011 and 2015. Along with local contributions provided by all funded project teams, over £1 billion is now being invested in local sustainable travel.

The bidding process for the Fund for 2011 to 2015 is now closed.

£100 million capital funding for the Fund has been made available through the Local Growth Fund for 2015 to 2016. The department has also made available a further £78.5 million of revenue funding (including Bikeability training) to enable further investment in sustainable transport schemes.
