Businesses across North Somerset are invited to apply for match-funded grants for initiatives to help their staff and customers choose to make greener journeys. Previous successful grants have helped purchase pool bikes, e-bikes, e-cargo bikes, cycle parking and one-to-one travel planning and bike training. Businesses can also ‘Claim a Stand’, accessing up to five high-quality bike stands at no cost, allowing them to encourage cycling to their premises.
To assist with Last Mile Delivery and to help businesses respond to the Covid-19 crisis, North Somerset Council is also offering electric Cargo bike loans alongside its existing e-bike loan scheme. This will reduce short-distance car journeys in urban environments; potentially create healthy jobs; and enable hospitality and other businesses hit by reduced custom or the closure of their physical businesses, to continue to trade in new and innovative ways, i.e. through offering home delivery options.
