Pocket Parks funding

21st November 2019, 1:22pm | By David |

The Ministry of Housing, Communities & Local Government is inviting applications from community-led organisations working in partnership with local authorities and other local partners to apply for grants, from a £1.35 million fund.

The aim is to establish new pocket parks, creating safe and usable green spaces, and for helping to restore and renovate existing parks which have fallen into disrepair, bringing them back into public use.  Grants of up to £15,000 are available for new pocket parks and up to £25,000 for renovation of existing parks or parts of a park. Find out more and apply by 31 December 2019 here @GOV.uk
