Spaces for People Fund - Renfrewshire

Spaces for People is a new, temporary infrastructure programme in Scotland which offers funding and support to make it safer for people who choose to walk, cycle or wheel for essential trips and exercise during Covid-19.

The Spaces for People programme is funded by the Scottish Government and managed by Sustrans Scotland.

It aims to enable us to implement measures which will protect public health, support physical distancing and prevent a second wave of the outbreak.

We're delighted to have been awarded funding for three sets of projects to keep people safe in Renfrewshire, and these include:

  • £104,000 for footway widening around local food shops and pharmacies
  • £460,000 for temporary cycleways on commuter routes
  • £150,000 to assist active travel to schools
