Active travel and leisure facility spending

Jack Stanson made this Freedom of Information request to Kent County Council

This request has been closed to new correspondence. Contact us if you think it should be reopened.

The request was successful.

Dear Kent County Council,

I’m writing to request the following:
The total funding allocation apportioned towards programmes designed to encourage, promote or facilitate cycling, walking or any other types of active transport in the area from the transport, environmental or urban planning departments for the 2013/14 financial year.
If there is no spend in these areas to attribute, I would like to request the confirmation that no funds have been allocated.
Where this amount is as a result of specific ongoing investments, please appropriately apportion the amount of this spend which will be allocated for the 2013/14 financial year. Where this is not possible, please give the total amount of the investment including all years.
Furthermore, I would like to receive the details of the total amount of money spent on leisure facilities and leisure services which fall under the remit of the local authority, for the 2013/14 financial year as a separate figure.
Thank you,

Yours faithfully,

Jack Stanson

Kent County Council
