We were delighted as part of HM the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee celebrations to be able to unveil £1 million to contribute towards community led projects that improve our green spaces.

If you have a community led project in mind for a park or open space, we would love to hear about it.

Please note that the nature of each individual successful proposal will determine whether the council awards the funding to the applicant directly or spends it on its behalf.
