LEP Conference

Our annual conference is taking place this Friday 22nd November in Bristol. We have a full house, so don’t worry if you aren’t there on the day, we’ll give an update on anything you need to know from it in next month’s newsletter and on the website.

 

Sustainable transport grants

The Travelwest team have grant funding available for local businesses looking to improve their sustainable commuting. The grants are match funded so they’ll contribute half of the cost of the project up to a maximum of £30,000.

Grants can be used for promotional events to encourage sustainable travel such as car sharing, walking or cycling, or to install something in the workplace to aid it, such as a pool bike or bike racks.
