On 1st August, DLUHC launched the Levelling Up Parks Fund. This Fund will create or significantly refurbish 100 parks across the UK in urban areas where provision of access to green spaces is lowest.

DLUHC has also made significant funds available to local areas under the UK Shared Prosperity Fund which can be used to regenerate urban green spaces, where doing so meets local priorities.

The Local Government Finance Settlement also made £54.1 billion for 2022/23 available to local government in England. Local councils have the powers to determine spending on a range of public services, including maintenance of parks and urban green spaces, and are best placed to decide how to meet pressures in their local areas.
