The Department for Communities and Local Government does not currently offer a Cycle to Work scheme to its employees. Nor does it offer any other tax-free benefits in kind to encourage green commuting. The same tax rules apply to benefits in kind provided to employees of Government Departments as to any other employee.

Information on whether any of the Department's non-departmental public bodies operate a Cycle to Work scheme is not held centrally.
