Learning from the Local Sustainable Transport Fund 2011-2015
This report compiles lessons from the Department for Transport’s four year £600m programme of investment in sustainable transport in England.
It draws on structured discussions with the local authority practitioners who implemented the Local Sustainable Transport Fund to learn how future similar activities should be undertaken, considering both local project and national programme levels. It looks at what worked, what didn’t, and how difficulties were overcome. The report also summarises the major activities and themes of the Fund.
It is an essential resource for council officers, councillors, Local Enterprise Partnerships and national programme managers implementing initiatives to improve and promote sustainable travel, including the DfT Access Fund.
