The Government has made funding available through a number of avenues to deliver LCWIPs, as outlined in the Cycling and Walking Investment Strategy (CWIS), including through the Integrated Transport Block and Highways Maintenance Fund.

Since publication of the CWIS, additional funding streams have been made available for investment on cycling and walking infrastructure, including the £1.7 billion Transforming Cities Fund, £220 million through the Clean Air Fund and £5 billion through the Housing Infrastructure Fund.

Decisions on future funding for cycling and walking will be made in the context of the next Spending Review, which will take place in 2019.
