To ask Her Majesty's Government whether the over £1 billion of Government funding for local authorities to support cycling and walking from 2017–22 has been spent; which local authorities received funding; and in which years.
On 7 February 2020, the Department published a detailed breakdown of annual investment in cycling and walking from 2016/17 to 2018/19 alongside the first report on progress made towards delivering the Cycling and Walking Investment Strategy (CWIS). This included information on how much funding each local authority received over that period for active travel schemes.
The Department will publish a further report to Parliament shortly which will include a breakdown of annual investment in cycling and walking over 2019/20 and 2020/21 from a wide range of funding sources. It will also make an announcement shortly on the capital funding that was allocated to local authorities in 2021/22.
Copies of the previous report to Parliament and funding breakdowns by local authority covering the years up to 2018/19 are available in the House Libraries.
A summary of the capital funding provided to each local authority in 2020/21 under the Active Travel Fund is set out in table 1 attached. A summary of the revenue funding provided to each local authority in 2021/22 under the Capability Fund is set out in Table 2 attached.
