About the electric bike grant scheme
From 1 July 2016, the new grant is 20% of the cost of an electric bike (E bike) up to a maximum of £300.
For E bikes which cost £1,500 and over, you'll receive the full £300 grant.
For E bikes which cost below £1,500, you'll receive a 20% discount.
This change only applies to application forms received after 1 July.
You have to be a local resident and over 14 to apply for the grant.
E bikes are better for the environment, your health and your pocket with:
- zero emissions
- no parking fees
- no petrol costs
