Southwark Council injects money into park regeneration

Southwark Council injects money into park regenerationSouthwark Council has pumped millions of pounds into the upkeep of its parks, according to new research.

The council announced that eight Southwark parks have secured funding from the Queen Elizabeth II Field's London Legacy Fund.

Around £10,000 will be set aside for each park to fund projects that help to improve children's playgrounds, parks, recreation grounds, nature reserves, football and rugby pitches.

The money will also go towards cricket fields, tennis courts, new floodlighting, outdoor gyms, outdoor table tennis tables and activity programmes.

Affected parks will include Southwark park, Dulwich park, Peckham Rye, Birmingham park, Burgess, Warwick Gardens and Russia Dock Woodlands, among others.

Commenting on the changes, councillor Barrie Hargrove, cabinet member for transport, environment and recycling, said it has been a great year for the borough.

He added: "I am pleased to have been successful in the bids for the London Legacy Funding. We now have the opportunity to further invest in our parks with new play facilities for young people and landscape improvements.

"It's been a fantastic year for our parks across the borough. Not only have we received new Green Flag Awards and opened a first class BMX track, but we've also had a really positive response from our recent resident satisfaction survey results."

Southwark has been in the news lately due to the number of positive changes that have been made in the borough.

It recently signed up to Unison's Ethical Home Care Charter designed to improve working conditions for hundreds of local care workers.

The council believes that it will also boost the provision of care for elderly people in Southwark.
 
It also recently launched a scheme where entrepreneurs were invited to bid for a share of a £50,000 funding pot in the business bursary offer.
 
 The scheme offers young people the chance to pitch their business ideas to a panel in the hope of receiving funding to finance their enterprise.
