Councillor Phil Davies introduced a report by the Strategic Director for Regeneration and Environment which requested the Cabinet to approve the ‘Key Component’ and ‘Major Bid’ programmes of the 2013/14 Local Sustainable Transport Fund (LSTF). It was reported that £1,084,860 of ‘major’ funding and £235,000 of ‘key component’ funding had been allocated to the Council for 2013/14.
