The Foundation will decide how the funding is to be allocated and distributed.

The Foundation will be community-led in its decision-making and will take account of views expressed by members of the public in relation to where investment should be made and what facilities and activities should be available in each park.

The Foundation will communicate regularly with members of the public about how funding is being distributed, through newsletters, website updates and the media, in its desire to be as open and transparent as possible.

In some instances, how funding is distributed will depend on how much money has been secured and from where. For example, some bids for funding may be for specific parks and may not include all eight of them, and some bids may be for specific projects. The criteria could be different for each bid.

If you have ideas about how funding should be allocated across the eight parks, complete our short survey, where you can give feedback and make suggestions, or email us at
