Towns for People to provide new community spaces

One year programme launched to transform poor-quality public space

Neighbourhoods across the UK will be “cleaner, greener and safer” under a one-year government programme supported by environmental charity Groundwork and a leading high street retailer. Towns for People aims to transform poor-quality public space into places for communities to enjoy with £100,000 of funding. Most of this, £70,000, comes from Marks & Spencer and the rest from the Office of the Deputy Prime Minister (ODPM). Groundwork will deliver the programme. Chief executive Tony Hawkhead said: “Towns for People enables residents to get involved in their neighbourhoods and feel a sense of pride in where they live.”
