Local Area Working proposals
How to submit a proposal
Please watch this short video that will guide you through the application process.
Your Area Manager will help you find out about current plans and opportunities before you send in any funding proposals. Details on your area manager can be found by clicking on your local area.
When applying for Local Priorities funding there are two forms which can be completed;
Transport local priorities application form, to be completed for any transportation scheme (e.g. traffic calming, parking, etc.)
Community application form, to be completed for any scheme which is not related to transport (e.g. support for vulnerable people, helping communities help themselves, etc.)
Please review the alternative sources for funding available to you before submitting a proposal.
How will my proposal be assessed?
Your proposal will be assessed against the following criteria:
- how well it fits with the priorities for the local area
- how well it supports our Strategic Priorities
- how well it would provide value for money
You can find some examples of eligible projects and proposals in our guide to applying for funding from the local priorities budget.
When to submit a proposal
The deadline for transport proposals is 31 August in the year before the funding is due.
Schemes are then assessed and a decision made in time for you to start delivering your project as early as possible in the next financial year.
Proposals made before the start of the financial year may also be considered.
Please check the application deadline dates for your LAF by clicking on your local area above.
Before you complete an application form, check what the budget status is for the local area.
