Application process and timescales

This funding stream is now closed.

How to apply

All applications should be submitted with the support of the Manchester Parks team and ward Councillors. If you have a query about your application email the team at

Parks in Partnership

The application process was split into two phases; we're now inviting applications for Phase #2. All funding should be allocated and spent by 31 March 2022 (there will be some flexibility on spend being carried over to the following financial year and - where this is the most appropriate course of action - to provide the best outcomes for the funding: this will be decided by the Steering Group.)

The Steering Group will aim to identify where wards that are proposing similar projects, or share a park between them, can work together and increase the available investment. 

Parks Development Programme

Applications for funding for Parks Development Programme projects can be submitted on a rolling basis, with funding allocated up to 2024/25. The Steering Group will meet quarterly to review new applications and monitor progress of current projects and investments. All funding should be allocated and spent by 31 March 2025.
