The Government has just made available a funding programme of £1.5 million to support the creation of pocket parks in deprived urban areas outside London.

Communities are invited to submit applications, with the support of their local authority, for up to £10,000 capital and up to £5,000 resource (revenue) funding.

The deadline is 5:00pm on Thursday 10 December 2015

There are no specific guidelines about what a pocket park should look like and both traditional and innovative proposals are encouraged.  Applications are encouraged from places that currently have limited access to high quality green spaces.

More information on the programme is here.  Application prospectus and contact details are available here.
