The Pothole Action Fund that ran from 2016/17 to 2020/21 was allocated to eligible local highway authorities through the Section 31 grant process. Funding provided in this way is not ringfenced as set out in the Local Government Act 2003, but grant funding letters come with grant agreements which include conditions of spend that local authorities must adhere to.
