Pocket parks: helping communities transform unloved, neglected or derelict areas into new green spaces

One-off grants are available for community-led organisations working in partnership with their local authority to create new pocket parks or bringing existing green spaces up to a safe, usable and inviting standard.

£15,000 for new pocket parks.

£25,000 for refurbishment of existing parks split between capital and revenue.

The funding should be spent by 31 March 2020.

An extra £500 will be allocated within the grant to enable successful applicants, should they need it, to pay a local organisation a CVS such as SUPPORT STAFFORDSHIRE to help them with their evaluation should this be required.

The deadline for applications is 31 December 2019 (5pm)
