Cornwall Council are inviting local businesses to apply for grants to provide equipment or facilities that encourage staff to opt for other ways of travel. The funding will be released in three phases, the second of which runs from April 2014 – February 2015 and has up to £100,000 available.

The aim of the grants is to help break down some of the barriers which are preventing people from travelling to, from and for work sustainably. Under the scheme grants will be awarded to individual businesses or collectives to help reduce the number of cars travelling to and from site. Match funding of up to 75% is available for businesses to use to buy facilities or equipment that support sustainable travel for employees.

This might include a set of pool bikes, a cycle shelter, an electric vehicle charging point or remodelling of an on-site car park to include car share spaces and clear routes for pedestrians.

If you have any questions or would like to find out more about the programme please feel free call Tasha Dennis on 01872 224603. Alternatively the application form and guidance can be found on our website at www.cornwall.gov.uk/traveltoworkgrant.
