We submitted two bids for a share of the government's £490m productivity investment fund in April 2017.

The funding bids, if successful, would be available to us over the next two financial years between 2018/19 and 2019/20.

Each local authority was allowed to make a maximum of two bids. The details of these bids can be found below.

Northallerton scheme

This scheme focuses on better pedestrian connections between the High Street and the former Northallerton prison site, which is currently being redeveloped. The project will also provide improvements to the roads around the former prison site.

West Harrogate scheme

This scheme will provide a number of highway and safety improvements, mainly along the Otley Road corridor.
