Stage of funding approval for Development Pool Schemes

Sian Berry made this Freedom of Information request to Department for Transport

This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.

The request was successful.

Dear Department for Transport,

I would like to request an update on the status of funding approval for Local Authority major transport schemes.

This is a follow-up to my previous request for the release of the DfT assessments and funding letters that granted programme entry to the majority of Development Pool schemes, which was followed by these documents being placed on your website.

My previous request for information:

The DfT webpage (now on

Since then, some schemes have received full approval, and this has sometimes been reported in local newspapers, but not all decisions appear to have been announced publicly and it would be both useful and consistent to have the webpage above updated with new information now.

My request is therefore for the following information to be released to me here or (preferably) placed on the webpage above for each of the Development Pool schemes and the remaining local major transport schemes, including the A6 to Manchester Airport Relief Road and the Mersey Gateway Bridge:

1) The current status of each scheme towards full funding approval

2) Decision letters from the DfT, or any relevant further correspondence towards a decision between the DfT and the local authorities involved.

Yours faithfully,

Sian Berry
