Businesses in Wimbledon Town Centre can now apply for funding to help switch to sustainable transport, via the use of eCargo bikes, which can be used for transport, deliveries, etc.
£400,000 has been made available by the Department for Transport in 2021/22 for the purchase of eCargo bikes, to support businesses switching to a sustainable transport solution. This includes:
- Funding for up to 40% of the total cost of an eCargo bike, up to a maximum of £2,500 for two-wheel models and £4,500 for three-wheel models.
- Applications will be capped at five bikes per organisation. Larger applications will be considered on a case-by-case basis.
- Applications may include more than one organisation. In these joint ‘high-street’ applications, a lead applicant will be responsible for submitting the application.
The application deadline is 14 December 2021. The claim deadline is 14 February 2022. eCargo bikes do not need to have been delivered for the grant to be paid.
Please refer to the Eligibility Criteria before applying.
