The Department has provided £0.784 million for Bikeability training in schools in Surrey. Surrey County Council is one of the 46 local authorities benefiting from a total of £1.5 million investment to support the development of Local Cycling and Walking Infrastructure Plans (LCWIPs). The Department has also allocated around £64 million to Surrey from non-ringfenced funding streams (including the Integrated Transport Block and Maintenance Block) of which a certain percentage is spent on measures which benefit cyclists and pedestrians. Local authorities are also able to use other local funds for cycling and walking projects.

Surrey County Council is part of the Enterprise M3 Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP), which was allocated almost £125 million through the Local Growth Fund (LGF). The Department conducted a survey of LEPs about investment of LGF on cycling and walking projects and this has shown that Enterprise M3 has allocated £42.3 million for cycling and walking projects in their region, including for projects in Woking and Guildford.
