The Shared Prosperity Fund will also part fund the Falmouth Active Streets scheme enabling increased walking, cycling and public transport journeys between Falmouth and Penryn. Additionally the funding will enable future active travel schemes to be delivered though the development of scheme designs in the second year of the programme and the production of local cycling and walking infrastructure plans for Hayle and St Ives and the China Clay area.

The public e-bike hire scheme already operating across five towns in Cornwall  and operated by Beryl bikes, will also be expanded to Saltash providing the opportunity to use the ‘on demand’ service to travel around those towns and in to and from Plymouth where Beryl also run a public e-bike hire scheme.

All of the above will support Cornwall’s journey to carbon neutrality as well as supporting active more healthy lifestyles.
