Officers introduced the report and noted the impact COVID-19 had had on the delivery of schemes in 2020. Therefore it was noted that an estimated underspend of £130,000 was available (from the 2020/21 DfT Access Fund allocation) to be brought forward to the 2021/22 budget. An extra £180,054 from DfT’s new Local Authority Capability Fund had also been allocated to the Council (since submission of the report) for 2021/22 to make the iTravel Programme 2021/22 budget an estimated £310,000.
