Community planting fund

Applications for the community planting and landscaping fund (or Green Infrastructure Improvement Fund) are now closed. Funding will be awarded in March 2021.

This on-off fund was open to charities, community interest companies, parish councils, voluntary groups, schools, scouting and girlguiding groups, and other not-for-profit organisations, for a variety of projects including:

  • Community gardens or allotment associations

  • In-Bloom groups

  • New planters/flower troughs

  • Landscape infrastructure improvements: seating, shelters, raised beds, signs, sculptures and other landscaping features

  • any other projects that would contribute to making Elmbridge a green and brighter borough.

The fund cannot be used for planting or landscaping projects on private land.

Maximum amount applied for: £5,000. Partnership funding is encouraged, but in some cases (i.e. for new groups), is not essential.

Applications are scored against the following criteria:

  • Contribution to create a more attractive, greener borough

  • Community involvement

  • Volunteer recruitment and retention

  • Long lasting, sustainable improvement

  • Biodiversity
