Places for Everyone

Places for Everyone

Places for Everyone is Sustrans’ permanent infrastructure fund for Scotland. Supported by Transport Scotland, we provide funding and expertise to help deliver walking, wheeling and cycling improvements across the country.

We currently have more than 200 projects at various stages of development, ranging from multi-million pound transformations in Scotland’s cities to new walking routes between some of Scotland’s smallest communities.

Thinking of applying?

Increasing demand for high quality walking, wheeling and cycling routes and the creation of hundreds of temporary measures to allow for physical distancing during the pandemic means that our fund is oversubscribed.

We are focusing on making sure our current projects are fully funded to completion and we do not expect to be able to accept new applications for new projects until Summer 2022.

Open to All

Community Groups and Development Trusts can receive support to help manage infrastructure design and construction.

Available Funding

We can award 100% of design costs and 70% of construction costs. We will work with you to identify necessary match funding.

Support to Completion

We provide support throughout the whole of your project, from application enquiries to developing a maintenance strategy.

Learning Everyday

Our Engage – Inspire – Learn programme can help keep you up to date with the latest trends and projects across Scotland.
