Are you a local business that wants to reduce your carbon footprint and help achieve Net Zero? Do you want to positively influence the way your colleagues travel by providing sustainable transport facilities at your workplace? Our Workplace Travel Grants might be able to help.

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. The maximum contribution from the Council is 75 per cent of the scheme costs.

Launched in October 2020, the programme has already benefitted 36 companies, with more than £430,000 from grants and business contributions being invested in sustainable transport facilities. Improved showers, cycle parking, electric vehicle charge points and staff pool bikes are just some of the measures funded so far.

Successful applicants, who are being supported by the Council’s Plymotion at Your Workplace travel planning team, include Plymouth University, University Hospital Plymouth NHS Trust, Nash & Co Solicitors LLP, YMCA Plymouth, Primal Europe Ltd and the Marine Biological Association.

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 2022/23 programme is Friday 30 September 2022 and all schemes funded this year must be delivered by mid-March 2023.
