Only a few days left to apply for greener travel grants

 

Employers in Crewe can get funding to encourage their workers to use greener forms of transport and reduce carbon emissions.

Grants of up to £5,000 are on offer, which can be used to promote cycling, walking, using public transport and car sharing.

Businesses are urged to contact Cheshire East Council and make a bid before the cut-off date of January 27, 2015.

Examples of eligible projects are installing cycle racks and shower facilities, improving footpath access, and providing protective equipment or pedometers.

Councillor David Topping, Cheshire East’s Cabinet member for service commissioning, said: “These grants have been put to very good use by many of the Borough’s employers and it would be a pity if any of this money was left unclaimed. 

“I urge anyone interested to make a bid and I can assure them that we will make the application process as simple and rapid as possible.”

The Smarter Ways to Travel scheme, part of Crewe’s Local Sustainable Transport programme, is run by the Council in partnership with the South Cheshire Chamber of Commerce.

To discuss their ideas, confirm eligibility and request application forms, interested employers should contact Clair Visco, business travel planning officer, at clair.visco@sccci.co.uk or by phone on 01270 504 700.
