We have radically simplified the Department for Transport's (DFT's) funding to local authorities from 26 grant streams to just four. This change has provided local authorities with greater participation and financial autonomy. The Department, therefore, has not made assessments of local impacts.
The DFT's block capital allocations to Nottinghamshire have been published and can be found at:
Nottinghamshire is already benefitting from the £9 million centrally-funded Mansfield Public Transport Interchange. The Department is also currently assessing the bid for full approval for phase two of the Nottingham Express Transit. The requested DFT contribution is £433.5 million over the lifetime of the project. The DFT is also currently assessing bids for the Nottingham Ring Road and Hucknall Town Centre schemes as part of the Development pool competition. The requested DFT contributions are £12.8 million and £8.5 million respectively.
As well as funding to local authorities, the Department supports local bus services through the Bus Service Operators Grant (BSOG). On a national level, the Department has carried out an equalities impact assessment. I refer the hon. Member to the answer I gave Andrew Gwynne on
