What is the Greater Manchester Green Spaces Fund?
The Greater Manchester Green Spaces Fund will give small grants to communities to clean up and improve pocket parks and local green spaces or create new ones where they are needed.
Potential projects could include:
- Improving existing or creating new accessible green space for people and/or wildlife
- Permanently greening streets
- Creating new permanent parklets or pocket parks
- Community gardening/food growing
- Turning paved-over areas to green areas
- Cleaning up and restoring streams, rivers, canals, and ponds
Applications will launch in spring 2022, managed via the Greater Manchester Environment Fund (GMEF).
