Community park wins council cash

A project to improve community access to a park is the latest to win money from Surrey County Council’s Community Improvements Fund.

The Woodland Trust has been given £17,000 towards improving a car park, putting up waymarking signs and providing information boards at Marden Park from the fund launched by leader David Hodge to help communities independently enhance their local areas.

Marden Park is a site of special scientific interest in Woldingham.

Among the projects that have already won funding are The Shop at Strood Green and an outdoor gym near Stoneleigh.

Groups will find out if they have been successful in the latest funding round in January. They have asked for between £10,000 and £50,000 – the most available for a single scheme.

Below is a map with pins marking the 45 projects that have been awarded cash so far. Some of the schemes have to meet other conditions, such as winning planning permission, before money is released.

More information about the community improvements fund can be found on the council’s website.
