I recall - but cannot find - an earlier thread which was talking about smartening up deserted land with grants. Interested readers may find this article from The Sunday Times,,587-716080,00.html of interest.

Love the idea of getting Southwark to fork out for pots of Farrow & Ball's latest period colour paint.

Then you need to attend meetings of your Community Council set up by Southwark's new adminsitration which have budgets to spend on making the area cleaner, greener and safer.

Or contact Groundwork, which is close to Lambeth North on Kennington Road. If you live within the Cross River Partnership Area they have 'Greening' and Open Spaces Grants which allow residents to apply for things to make your area nicer, like window boxes. Plus they administer something called the Western Riverside Environmental Fund which is for pocket parks, small green spaces etc. And maybe more. If you know what you want, the money might be there.

But why worry, it looks as Southwark are on the case......

Just like to say, eneyone on the Tabard Gardens Estate should look forward to more green spaces, shrub gardens are to be established all over the Estate. I am Steven Hall the Environmental Improvements person for the T.M.C. This is the first of many projects set to Make Tabard Gardens a greener place.
