Transport Project

Posted on 6th August 2018 by Lauren Parry

Our ‘Gear Change to Tackle Climate Change’ project aims to inspire and support people to reduce car use for short journeys.

This project is funded for 2018 – 2020 by the Scottish Government’s Climate Challenge Fund (CCF) who awarded us £159,352 to run carbon emission reducing transport activities in our community.

The CCF is a Scottish Government grant programme, managed and administered by Keep Scotland Beautiful. The CCF provides funding and support for community groups to help tackle climate change by running projects that reduce local carbon emissions.
