The location of the team has yet to be determined; but it will be centrally located within the North East region at a location with good public transport links
In March 2018 the Department for Transport (DfT) launched a Call for Proposals for city region authorities wishing to obtain capital funding from its Transforming Cities Fund (TCF). The TCF has been established to fund capital infrastructure works that will deliver transformational benefits to sustainable and public transport users.
In September 2018 the North East (Northumberland, Tyne and Wear and County Durham) was one of ten city regions shortlisted to submit bids for funding from TCF during 2019. In December 2018 two further city regions were added to this shortlist. Across the 12 bidding authorities there is £1.22bn of capital funding available.
In November 2018 the Chancellor of the Exchequer announced in his budget statement that an opportunity to bid for Future Mobility Zone status would be added to the TCF process. Up to three Future Mobility Zones (FMZs) will be established during 2019, adding to the zone already established in the West Midlands. £90m of TCF funding has so far been allocated by DfT to the FMZs.
In order to respond to these opportunities in the most effective way and maximise the chances of success, the Regional Transport Team is boosting its resources temporarily in some key areas.
This is a secondment opportunity to start as soon as possible, and will be required until the end of October 2019.
An experienced stakeholder and communications resource is required to provide liaison and communication with all stakeholders. The post will need to combine stakeholder management skills with experience of working on transport projects.
