Greener City Fund now open

21st August 2017 / Posted by CRP Team

The Mayor has committed £9m to create and improve green spaces and encourage tree planting and management in London!

London’s green spaces are vital for people’s wellbeing and with the aim of making London a National Park City the Mayor has launched the Greener City Fund.

This new programme will support projects that promote innovation and have a lasting impact in terms of making London’s neighbourhoods greener. Types of initiatives that this fund will support include: tree planting, restoring rivers, increasing the number of natural play-spaces for children, and creating green routes that encourage more Londoners to walk and cycle.

Funding is split across three project categories:

  • Strategic green infrastructure projects
  • London’s urban forest
  • Community Tree Planting and Green Space Grants

For information on how to apply and funding deadlines see the Greener City Fund prospectus, available here.
