AppyWay launches Emergency Active Travel Fund guide for local authorities

AppyWay has put together a guide to help English local authorities navigate the opportunities made available by the Government’s £225 million Emergency Active Travel Fund.

The EATF fund is part of the government's £2 billion package for local authorities across the country to put cycling and walking at the heart of their transport policy.

A statement from AppyWay said: “But how exactly should local authorities respond?

“How can approaches and actions engender and reinforce positive behaviour change?

“How can communities and businesses be engaged so that initiatives are well understood and considered successful?

“We have done the hard yards for authorities and collated the best insight and pertinent information in guide - Reimagining Travel and Public Space Post COVID-19.”

The guide includes details on understanding the recent changes to Statutory Guidance, how and when to apply for the emergency active travel funding, through to how an authority can make changes and engage the public.
