The Funding Toolkit has been produced to provide decision-makers with an overview of potentially available funding sources to use for a variety of transport and land use schemes and projects at a local level. Local authorities often face barriers when identifying or applying for funding, and this toolkit will help them in both identifying alternative sources of funding, and highlighting the potential barriers at an early stage. The Toolkit provides advice on using various sources of funding, including private sector, other central, regional or local government initiatives, initiatives of governmental organisations or bodies, and the voluntary/charitable sector. The Toolkit also provides descriptions of existing sources, the types of schemes that they can be used for, case study examples of the funding sources used in practice, and the potential benefits and disadvantages of using the source. Advice on partnership working to obtain funding is also supplied.
