The Ministry of Housing, Communities & Local Government has announced that Councils across the country are to benefit from more than £13 million funding to rejuvenate and create green spaces for the benefit of all.

£9.7 million of new funding will be awarded to local councils to better maintain, protect and increase their recreational spaces.

An additional £2.75 million will also be made available for the pocket parks plus programme to support communities to take the lead in transforming their neglected and derelict spaces.
