Playpark Renewal Fund reopened

A funding pot to help revamp community play areas has reopened for applications.

Orkney Islands Council’s (OIC) Playpark Renewal Fund has reopened for applications from communities striving to improve their playpark areas, offering support of up to 50 per cent of project costs — up to a maximum grant of £25,000 per project.

Eight applications have been received from eligible organisations in the county over previous rounds in April and September, this year.

The fund, created with COVID-19 recovery funding and managed by the council’s sport and leisure service, is now open for applications until February 4.

Application guidance and the application form are available at https://www.orkney.gov.uk/Service-Directory/S/play-areas.htm
