star this property answer text <p>The Department has provided £0.784 million for Bikeability training in schools in Surrey. Surrey County Council is one of the 46 local authorities benefiting from a total of £1.5 million investment to support the development of Local Cycling and Walking Infrastructure Plans (LCWIPs). The Department has also allocated around £64 million to Surrey from non-ringfenced funding streams (including the Integrated Transport Block and Maintenance Block) of which a certain percentage is spent on measures which benefit cyclists and pedestrians. Local authorities are also able to use other local funds for cycling and walking projects.</p><p> </p><p>Surrey County Council is part of the Enterprise M3 Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP), which was allocated almost £125 million through the Local Growth Fund (LGF). The Department conducted a survey of LEPs about investment of LGF on cycling and walking projects and this has shown that Enterprise M3 has allocated £42.3 million for cycling and walking projects in their region, including for projects in Woking and Guildford.</p>
