Green spaces in Manchester could receive a boost as Manchester City Council decides where to spent £14.5 million on a cleaner and greener city.
The council is asking residents how to spend the money, received as a one-off windfall after Manchester Airport Holdings, which the council owns shares in, bought Stansted Airport.
The money can only be spent on one-off improvement projects which will make a lasting difference to the city’s environment.
Executive member for neighbourhood services Councillor Bernard Priest said: "Residents tell us that having a clean and green city is a real priority which is why we are earmarking this money to support that goal.
"We recognise that Manchester, in common with other major cities, is not as clean and green as it could and should be. This is something which we are determined to improve and this new funding will make a significant contribution."
The council will look at investments on a project-by-project basis. Visit www.manchester.gov.uk/cleancity.
