Take a Stand is a grant scheme to provide up to 50% funding for cycle parking facilities for employers in and around Cambridge. It is run and funded by the Cambridgeshire Travel for Work Partnership together with Cambridge City Council.

As the chair of the Travel for Work Steering Group, I recently had the pleasure of presenting cheques to a value of more than £7,000 to the three successful applicants for the second round of funding:

  • Traffic International
  • St John’s Innovation Centre
  • Orwell Housing Association

The 2003 scheme should be running from June this year, and Travel for Work is already taking details of interested employers. Anyone wishing to apply, or to find out more, should contact Mark Webb phone (01223) 712429 :
