Answer for Liveable Neighbourhoods funding

Answered By: 
The Mayor

My new £114m 'Liveable Neighbourhoods' programme will improve local environments across London by directly enabling walking, cycling and the use of public transport.

Twenty-eight Liveable Neighbourhoods bids were received for 2018/19, and seven boroughs have been successful: Ealing, Greenwich, Hackney, Haringey, Havering, Lewisham, and Waltham Forest. Unsuccessful boroughs will be able to bid for funding in future years, and Transport for London will provide detailed feedback to all boroughs to help them prepare future submissions.
