Active Travel pdf icon PDF 341 KB

Oxfordshire County Council has a programme of active travel initiatives, designed to promote walking and cycling. This programme has recently been boosted through the Emergency Active Travel Fund, which is being provided by the Department for Transport to support a significant shift to walking and cycling, particulalrly as lockdown restrictions are eased. The fund is being released in two tranches:


Tranche 1 was released in June. OCC was given an indicative allocation of £597,000, and received 50% of this, £298,000.


Tranche 2 was announced on Friday 10 July, with bids required to be submitted on Friday 7 August. OCC have been given an indicative allocation of £2.38m.


A presentation to the Committee will:


Consider lessons learned from tranche 1 of the Emergency Active Travel Fund and how these will help inform our management of tranche 2.

Consider the wider programme of active travel, and how the Emergency Active Travel Fund will enhance this programme

Provide details of the schemes that are being recommended to be put forward for funding as part of tranche 2, including the rationale and evidence base that supports these proposals.


The Committee are recommended to note and comment on the presentation.
