City Deal Advocacy Fund

Greater Cambridge City Deal is a unique opportunity to secure £1 billion in investment for Cambridge. A key focus for this investment is transport. We are advocating for cycling to benefit from this opportunity to increase rates of active travel and improve safety in the UK’s leading cycling city.

Location

Situation

Cycling can play a key role in healthy lifestyles, well-being & family life across UK. Cycling infrastructure that makes it safe for people of all ages and abilities to cycle is critical to increase the number of people who chose active travel for leisure or regular travel to school and work. The City Deal is a once in a generation opportunity to secure investment in cycling infrastructure. This opportunity will increase the workload of our charity and we need to increase our capacity.

Solution

With increased capacity we can maximize the benefit of the City Deal by advocating for proposals and implementations that provide world-class infrastructure that will increase rates and benefits of cycling in Greater Cambridge. We will: > Increase employee time dedicated to advocacy, communications and policy development > Develop design guides and policies to influence proposals > Produce, distribute materials to residents and stakeholders to inform of City Deal impacts and opportunities
