Element 2 Funding

Department for Transport – Element 2 Grant Funding

In 2009, the Department for Transport (DfT) established the Element 2 funding awards to support local authorities in effective management of the highways asset and to encourage innovation in the delivery of the service.

Blackpool Council was successful in our bid for DfT Element 2 funding from the DfT and in 2009 received the largest of the awards to local authorities. Blackpool’s funding bid was bold and based upon what the Council had already achieved in re-engineering our approach to managing our highways asset, which was founded upon our Highways Asset Management Plan approved by members in 2009.
