The greening of Islington

Do you know an outdoor space that could be a fruit orchard or a wild flower garden? The council is looking for applications from community groups, businesses or individuals for projects that could green the borough.

The council’s Greenspace team will build and plant the area and then hand it over it over to be maintained by the community.

The deadline for applications – forms are on the council’s website – is 29 April and the successful projects with be announced at the end of June.

Funding will be targetted at areas that will most benefit from new green space.

The council is looking for long-term commitment to the maintenance of the green space, but it will maintain overall liability for managing the asset.
