Maintenance Incentive Fund (2018 to 2019)

This separate funding stream is aimed to improve local authority maintenance efficiency, with an increasing proportion of maintenance funding allocated through this process. In April 2016, the Department for Transport announced the allocations of funding through the maintenance incentive fund for each local authority. These allocations are based on a self-assessment questionnaire that the local authority provides each year.

For 2018  to 19, Nottingham City Council is scored as a band two authority. The allocation will be used alongside the core maintenance funding.
