As part of the Local Sustainable Transport Fund across the West of England, funding of £750,000 has been made available for projects in South Gloucestershire, and you have until July 26 to suggest how the money is spent.

Examples of the sorts of projects which would be supported include:

■ improvements to facilities such as cycle parking or bus shelters

■ upgrading pedestrian crossings

■ improvements to community centres such as planting trees and other greenery, as well as putting in benches

■ extending or improving cycle routes for shared use of pedestrians

Projects need to demonstrate a reduction in carbon emissions, support economic growth or promote active forms of travel such as walking or cycling.

The funding is primarily available to benefit residents in South Gloucestershire’s six priority neighbourhoods including Filton, Patchway, Yate and Dodington, Staple Hill, Cadbury Heath and Kingswood.

Ideas can be submitted until the closing date on Friday 26 July. For further information contact Sustainable Travel Officer for Communities Celia Davis on 01454 865218 or email
