Local funding from the 5p bag charge

The money raised from the 5p bag charge in Tesco stores in England, Wales and Scotland is being used to pay for a large number of local projects to improve green spaces in communities. Projects that will get the green light as a result of the funding will include building new pocket parks, sports facilities, woodland walks and community gardens.

Administration of the local funding is being managed by the community charity with a green heart, Groundwork, which specialises in transforming communities and the local environment for the better.

Projects that would typically receive funding include: 

  • Parks, pocket parks and urban green spaces
  • Green corridors – river and canals, cycle ways
  • Formal and informal play areas
  • Open access sports facilities within public parks and recreation grounds – eg football pitches, tennis courts and cricket pitches
