The Department has devolved £773,409 of BSOG funding directly to Cornwall County Council. It is for each local authority to decide how to precisely spend their devolved BSOG grant, however funds may only be used to support bus services, which includes community transport services run under a section 19 permit.

The Department paid £505,868 excluding VAT in grant funding to eleven community transport operators in Cornwall, toward minibuses to use for the benefit of their passengers from the Department’s Community Minibus Fund (CMF). The North Cornwall constituency will receive some of this CMF support.

The Department also paid £2,681 directly to four community transport operators in the North Cornwall constituency in the 2016-17 financial year through BSOG.
