On 4 July 2012, the Council Cabinet agreed that £3.5 million be made available to invest into Parks and Green Spaces citywide. This investment will contribute towards meeting the policies and aspirations of the Parks and Green Space Strategy. As part of this funding stream we will see a further 24 additional Children’s play areas being improved within our parks and green spaces.
In total, 47 projects across all Neighbourhood Partnership areas were put forward to cabinet for approval. Some of these projects were funded wholly through the Capital Stimulus funding, while others were required to be match funded from the Neighbourhood Partnership devolved S106 funding.
Work is now in prgress to confirm S106 funding, finalise the designs of these projects and let contracts as necessary. Work will begin on the ground soon.
The documents below which were prepared for the BPF give the latest updates.
