2022-01_9. PUMP TRACK

(5 min) 8:14

Update on grant applications for the pump track.

The grant application to Sport England Return to Play was not successful. The objective of this grant was to facilitate return to play following coronavirus. The feedback given was that due to a high number of applications they were not able to support as many applications as they would like. Feedback also stated that the project did not meet the programme criteria. In view of the significant amount of research and contact with Sport England staff to ensure that the application did meet the criteria, clarification was requested as to why the application did not meet the criteria. Sport England responded that the grant was intended for small scale adjustments to existing facilities to enable play during coronavirus rather than larger new projects.

The grant application to BWCE was not successful. The emphasis of this grant was to support projects that promote sustainable transport and reduce carbon emissions. The feedback given was that the panel did not feel the activity would have a strong effect on encouraging sustainable transport and reducing carbon emissions, as compared to other applications in this round. The feedback stated “We receive a large number of applications and so need to prioritise the use of the limited funds available”
