Online tool launched for managers of green spaces

The Institute of Parks and Green Space (IPGS) and CABE Space have launched ParksMatch, an online tool where green space managers can post requests for advice from other managers.

If a site user is unsuccessful in finding another user with a solution that could be copied - for example, on how to set up a community-run network of cafes - the IPGS and CABE Space will endeavour to help.

Both bodies are also offering a number of grants of up to £500 for travel and accommodation when individuals would like to travel to another local authority.

Grant applications must be from a parks or green space manager working in an urban local authority and the subject of the site visit must fall within the following topics: marketing and promoting sites, community engagement, climate change and sustainability, leading and managing people and funding and financial management. On completing a visit, a project report must be submitted.
