To ask the Secretary of State for Transport, how much his Department plans to spend in Local Growth Deals announced from 5 December 2014 to 29 January 2015 on (a) roads, (b) public transport, (c) cycling and walking and (d) mixed mode schemes in each Local Enterprise Partnership area in each year from 2015-16 to 2020-21.

The Government announced an expansion of Growth Deals for Local Enterprise Partnerships (LEPs) on 29 January 2015. This confirmed a total amount of additional funding for each LEP but, unlike the previous announcement in July 2014, did not specify the funding for individual projects that LEPs plan to deliver with this money. This is because many of the projects are at early stages of development and further work is required to finalise business cases, cost estimates and additional funding sources. For that reason it is not possible to provide the precise breakdown requested.
