Transport: Middlesbrough

Volume 486: debated on Tuesday 20 January 2009

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport what green travel incentives are offered to people working in Middlesbrough South and East Cleveland constituency. (247979)

The Department for Transport provides funding for Middlesbrough and Redcar and Cleveland borough councils through their local transport plan and revenue support grant allocations. Such funding can be used to support sustainable travel initiatives. In addition, we publish guidance on the development of travel plans and encourage partnership working between the public and private sectors to deliver opportunities for individuals to choose more sustainable travel options.

Specific initiatives that exist within the constituency area of Middlesbrough, South and East Cleveland would be best provided by the local authorities mentioned previously and/or by canvassing local businesses.
