£1.365m From the Government To Fund Improvement Schemes in CBC's Local Transport Plan.
The Government has allocated £1.365m to fund improvement schemes in the Central Bedfordshire Council's Local Transport Plan. The Council will base proposed schemes on transport studies and consultation with residents and local councillors.
The national integrated transport budget has been cut by 40%. Executive councillors at CBC argue that because of CBC’s historic performance and the improvements it has implemented have made a difference, CBC will actually receive around £300,000 more than if the Government had applied a straight 40 per cent cut.
