Applications are now being accepted for capital grants of up to £25,000 for local businesses for measures that help staff travel more sustainably to, from and whilst at work through Plymouth City Council’s Productive Plymouth Transforming Cities Fund Programme.

Fifteen companies were awarded grants in 2020/21 to deliver measures including improved shower facilities, electric vehicle charge points and pool bikes for staff to use either to commute or for trips during the working day.

Bids aren’t limited to these areas and the Council is open to innovative proposals that specifically reflect how the business operates. The maximum contribution from the Council is 75 per cent of the scheme costs.

Successful applicants include University Hospital Plymouth NHS Trust, Nash & Co Solicitors LLP, YMCA Plymouth and Primal Europe Ltd.

Successful applicants will be supported by the Council’s Plymotion at Your Workplace personalised travel planning team to help you get the maximum impact from the grant.

More details of the grant scheme, including application forms, along with details of the schemes delivered by successful companies are available on the Plymouth City Council Workplace Travel Grant page.

The closing date for applications for the 2021/22 programme is Tuesday 30 November 2021 and all schemes funded this year must be delivered by mid-March 2022.
