Grants awarded for local spaces

£30 million scheme backs 64 projects improving quality of local spaces

Sixty-four projects won funding this week in the first round of a £30 million scheme by the Government to improve the quality of local spaces to meet community needs. On Tuesday, the Office of the Deputy Prime Minister announced £1,297,182 of funding as part of the Living Spaces plan. The scheme was launched in May to provide funding, advice and practical support for community groups to take action on green spaces. Cash can be used to improve play areas, local parks, kick-about areas, skate parks, community gardens, courts and squares. It is being delivered by the Groundwork charity, which is working with the GreenSpace (formally known as the Urban Parks Forum) and a number of other partners.
