Cycle City Ambition Grant

Full details of the bid documents can be found on website. We have extracted what is specific to Bath from this.

CCAG bids are about doing things that just could not be achieved within budgets for the Local Sustainable Transport funds (at most 150k for a project). You would never get a spend of £1m on a bridge. This is what the CCAG is all about. Ambition.

How to use this page

This is laid out into 4 sections.

  • Being Elaborated:- This is where we can make the biggest influence
  • To be Elaborated:- Yup, we know it’s coming. Think hard about it and be ready to get involved when we can.
  • Ready for Delivery:- Cycle Bath has done all it can, the plans are set in stone and we are just watching it happen.
  • Delivered:- Either being built or nothing else left to do. Any issues probably to be raised post delivery.
