Department for Transport to reallocate £1.5m after rejecting New Forest cycle improvements

New Forest National Park Association will press ahead with four schemes approved by Department for Transport, but must hand back £1.5m.

The New Forest National Park Association admits it is disappointed with the Department for Transport’s decision to reject £1.5m of cycling improvements but will move ahead as planned with four other schemes.

The NFNPA was awarded £3.6m for cycling schemes, and the DfT have already approved £2m worth of proposals, but the remaining £1.5m must now be returned to the government department.
