Pocket parks: support for communities to manage small green spaces
DCLG launches a £1.5m programme that supports communities to work with local authorities and other partners to establish a pocket park.
Communities with the support of their local authority are invited to make an application for up to £10,000 capital and up to £5,000 resource funding per project.
There is no prescription on what a pocket park should look like and they welcome both innovative and traditional proposals. They are also keen to see applications from projects aiming to improve their local town centre or high street with a community green space. The aim is to increase access to good quality green space in a sustainable and community-led manner.
