It is for local authorities rather than central Government in the first instance to determine whether, and if so how, to promote bike-share schemes in their areas. The Government’s overall plans to increase cycling and walking, together with a summary of the available funding, are set out in the statutory Cycling and Walking Investment Strategy published in April 2017.
