The Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government is providing a £1 million fund to support the development of new pocket parks and to refurbish existing parks that have fallen into disrepair where their restoration could have a significant positive impact on the local community and address a specific local need.

The period for making applications for this programme closed on 25 January 2019. In February we announced an increase in the level of funding from £1 million to £3.75 million. The £2.75 million additional funding will be used to deliver the successful bids received within the application window. The timescale for the scheme has not been extended.
