Appendix D3 – Local Growth Fund

 

Local Growth Fund programme update for the Maidstone Borough.

 

The Department for Transport (DfT) added £100m to the Local Growth Fund (LGF) pot in order to fund Local Sustainable Transport Fund Style schemes.  KCC subsequently submitted four Local Sustainable Transport Fund (LSTF) capital bids 1) East Kent – A network for Growth, 2) Kent Thameside – Integrated door-to-door journeys and 3) West Kent – Tackling Congestion.  The fourth was for Tonbridge Town Centre Regeneration, which included a highway improvements scheme in the Lower High Street as well as additional LSTF style measures.  The objective of all of the capital bids is to boost economic growth by decreasing carbon emissions and reducing congestion.

 

The Kent Thameside, West Kent and Tonbridge Town Centre Regeneration bids were all successful. The schemes aim to:

 

·                improve access to employment and services

·                reduce the need to travel by the private car

·                enhance pedestrian, cycle and public transport facilities

·                improve sustainable transport connections

 

The following schemes have been submitted as part of the successful West Kent LSTF this financial year.
