Freedom of Information Request

Sustans / Sustans Scotland

Received: 4 March 2021

I would like to make an application under the Freedom of Information Act for the following information which I have broken down into a series of separate questions.

Q1. How much direct cash funding has your local authority received from Sustrans (and/or Sustrans Scotland) in the last three financial years? Please give a breakdown for each financial year up until April 6, 2021. Please state if Sustrans is managing funding from the national Government or a transport authority (or any other authority) over those three financial years (making clear whether that is separate to the 'direct cash funding' in the first part of the question).

Q2a. How many staff have been 'seconded' to your local authority by Sustrans/Sustrans Scotland in the last three financial years? If possible, please state the length of those secondments, the days per working week and whether those secondments are continuing to this day.
Q2b. Can you give the cost the council contributed to such secondments for each financial year. If that is shared with Sustrans can you let me know how much Sustrans contributed (again, for each financial year)?
Q2c. Can you say what projects they have worked on for each financial year?
Q3. Have any Sustrans/Sustrans Scotland employees who were seconded to the council then been subsequently employed full time by your local authority in the last three financial years? How many for each financial year? If possible, can you say what role (if any) they have taken?
