Last week the Government awarded West Berkshire Council £495,000 (the second instalment of a total payment of £619,000) of its Active Travel Fund.
This is a multi-million pound initiative to help local authorities construct high-quality cycle and walkways to get us out of our cars. West Berkshire Council are concluding their consultations on how this will be spent (and I’ve made a request of my own). This should be done by January with work to begin in the New Year.
I will keep you posted on the final plans.
