Cycle friendly Deal gets £98000
Sixteen successful 'fast track’ projects are receiving a share of £6 million Coastal Communities Fund money to help deliver sustainable growth and jobs across the British coast. And one of these is Deal.
Deal has been given a £98,077 grant towards a £106,000 project to create a 'new tourism offer' aimed at families and occasional cyclists to make Deal a cycle friendly town. Funding will support the development of family friendly cycle routes, improved signage and the creation of new cycle maps and guides, plus a new e-bike share scheme.
The 'fast track' projects are 'ready to go’ and work should begin in 2018 to 2019 before the main round funding becomes available in April 2019. More information from gov.uk, the government's website.

Free cycle loan scheme
If you work or study in Kent and would like access to free bicycles to try cycling to and from work or education, then a new cycle loan scheme from Kent Connected could be for you!
The new cycle loan scheme provides free access to refurbished cycles with the aim of promoting active and sustainable ways to travel to and from work and/or education. The cycles are provided through Cycle Community, a Community Interest Company, who take unwanted cycles and refurbish them to be used by the local community.
If you are interested in this scheme and would like more information or to apply, get in touch by emailing KentConnected@kent.gov.uk or visit https://kentconnected.org/info-for/businesses/free-bikes-kent-workplaces-schools.
Kent Connected is a Kent County Council initiative funded by the Department for Transport’s Local Sustainable Transport Fund to address peak traffic congestion, improve travel choices and promote more active and sustainable transport modes in Kent.
