The Department for Communities and Local Government will fund up to one hundred "pocket parks" in deprived urban areas where "access to green space is poor or can be shown to be needed".

Community groups with a constitution can apply. The local authority will hold the grant funding and you need to have the local authority's written agreement to this before you apply

Grants of betwee £10,000 - £15,000 are available.

"We will support communities to develop new green spaces (or improve existing ones that are in poor condition) that provide people with better quality spaces; increasing opportunities for getting together, healthy living, relaxation, play, food growing and contact with nature."
