Transport Scotland’s Low Carbon Travel and Transport Challenge Fund closed for Round 3 applications on 25 October 2019 and on 10 September 2020, successful applications were announced. Energy Saving Trust administers the fund on behalf of Transport Scotland.

Public, community and third sector organisations were invited to apply for funding under the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF) 2014-2020 Programme to facilitate the delivery of active travel and low carbon transport hubs, as well as paths. Michael Matheson, Cabinet Secretary for Transport, Infrastructure and Connectivity, announced on 10 September 2020 that ten organisations will be awarded funding. Find out more about the background and strategic aims of the LCTT Fund.

For Round 3, £2.48 million ERDF funds are available for projects from the Highlands and Islands (H&I) area and £5.95 million of ERDF are available for projects from the Lowlands and Uplands (LUPS) area of Scotland. Transport Scotland is also making available a limited budget to support a proportion of the match funding requirements of projects.

A total of £9,462,015.44 was awarded to successful projects in round 3. Our list of funding awards provides further details on all awarded projects in round 3.
