Isle of Wight Council has secured £1.35m funding from the Department for Transport (DfT) Access Fund for Sustainable Travel (the Access Fund) to deliver a series of sustainable transport projects and interventions between 2017 and 2020. The intention of this funding is to improve access to jobs, skills, education and training by boosting the number of people walking and cycling as well as focusing on achieving targeted levels of travel behaviour change amongst residents and to inspire more sustainable visitor travel.
A small section of this funding is being made available as Sustainable Transport Innovation Grants. Island groups, businesses and organisations are being encouraged to apply for up to £10,000 of revenue funding to deliver projects that embrace innovation and unlock potential for increased active and sustainable transport on the island.
