Grants to make the City 'greener'

LIVERPOOL will be cleaner and greener thanks to a new fund to help community groups make improvements in their neighbourhoods.

The Environmental Initiatives Fund was set up by the Mayor of Liverpool, Joe Anderson, following a recommendation in the Interim Report for the Strategic Green and Open Spaces Review.

This called for community groups, schools and small businesses to be helped to play more active roles in improving their local environment.

A funding pot of £20,000 was set up and groups were invited to bid for grants of up to £500.

23 groups have been awarded a total of £10,430 in the first round of applications. Among the successful were those to improve community gardens, to engage children in gardening projects and community clean-ups

A 2nd round of applications will be considered in late 2016.

Councillor Steve Munby, cabinet member for neighbourhoods, said:- "While the grant to each group may not be a large amount of money they will still have an impact on making neighbourhoods greener and cleaner.

But, just as importantly, they will help to get communities working together to improve their neighbourhoods.

I have been encouraged that we had a wide range of organisations from across the City coming forward with ideas on how they can improve their local environment and we were able to support several bids."
