Launch of Pocket Parks Plus

The Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government (MHCLG) is providing a £1 million fund to support the development of new pocket parks and to refurbish existing parks that have fallen into disrepair, where their restoration could have a significant positive impact on the local community and address a specific local need.

The Pocket Parks Plus prospectus offers an opportunity to build on coverage around the Government’s work to support local parks and green areas, especially with regards to community involvement in green spaces. It will also build on the success of the original Pocket Parks Scheme in 2015/16.

Communities across England can bid for a share of £1 million Pocket Parks Plus funding to support them in taking control of their own green spaces.

Applicants have until Friday 25 January 2019 to submit an application to MHCLG and further details are available here.
