Cash for green improvements
FUNDING of up to £500 is being made
available to organisations wanting to improve green spaces in Liverpool.
The cash is being made available by Mayor Joe Anderson for not for profit
community groups, civic organisations, volunteer groups, school PTAs and small
to medium sized businesses across the city to make environmental improvements.
The aim is to help kick start new initiatives and activities or contribute
towards larger projects and could include the likes of litter picking in parks
and green spaces, greening and planting projects for grot spots and other
Councillor Steve Munby, Cabinet member for neighbourhoods, said:- "We
recognise that there are a lot of organisations such as friends of parks groups
who are keen to give something back to their local community or improve their
area, but need some funding to buy equipment or plants. By making
relatively small amounts of money available we know we can make a big difference
to areas that need enhancing environmentally."
The funding cannot be used to pay salaries, management costs, purchasing
vehicles or ICT equipment or projects which duplicate services.
A total of £20,000 has been earmarked for the scheme.
