Park and Ride Schemes: Bridlington

Volume 461: debated on Tuesday 12 June 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport what criteria were used by his Department in approving a park and ride scheme for Bridlington. (142082)

The Bridlington Integrated Transport Scheme, which includes a park and ride element, was given an initial approval (Programme Entry) by this Department in July 2006.

The decision to fund the scheme was based on the Department's assessment of East Riding of Yorkshire Council's business case. This assessment looks, in particular, at the strategic case, value for money, deliverability, and financial and commercial aspects. The value for money assessment takes into account economy, safety, integration, environment and accessibility.

All new major local authority schemes for which project-specific funding is sought are assessed according to these criteria.
