Answer for Mayor's Air Quality Fund

Answered By: 
The Mayor

In recognition of the importance of improving air quality, I have asked TfL within its new Business Plan to identify a £20 million budget to support the new Air Quality Fund. I launched the Fund at an event on 13 February 2013, and copies of the spending guidance have been distributed to the London boroughs and other stakeholders.

There will be £2 million per annum available under the new Fund. Initial allocations will be made for 2013/14 - 2015/16, following evaluation of the bids which are due back to TfL on 12 April 2013.
