View original Local authorities to receive £2.2 million in funding to tackle air pollution

The Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs has announced that more than £2.2 million in Government funding has been granted to local authorities across England to deliver innovative projects to improve air quality. The money, from the government’s Air Quality Grant, is intended to support schemes which help councils develop and implement measures to benefit schools, businesses and residents, reducing the impact on people’s health and creating cleaner and healthier environments. Proposals receiving funding include projects and campaigns to reduce harmful emissions outside schools; encourage the take up of electric taxis; and encourage more active transport.

The Transport Knowledge Hub is a fantastic resource and I’m really excited about the opportunity to explore how we can maximise its use among transport stakeholders. In the South East Midlands, investing in local transport infrastructure has unlocked significant economic growth. The Hub offers a formal framework for sharing expertise with decision makers around the UK, as well as learning from the experience of others. This will enable more investment to be directed towards  local and sustainable forms of transport.
