All eligible ideas are considered by your local ward councillors. Decisions will be announced at Multi Ward Area meetings in spring 2023.

If you apply to receive your funding as a grant, you'll receive an initial assessment form which you must return to help us check your organisation is suitable to manage a project. Visit our Cleaner Greener Safer grants page for more information.

If you have any questions regarding your application for capital funding, contact the CGS team.


The application period has now closed and will reopen 1 September and close 2 October 2022

What is the Devolved Highways programme

The application form can also be used to submit ideas for the Devolved Highways programme. This is a programme of capital funding used to improve the public highway infrastructure and enhance transport facilities. This includes minor improvement schemes, such as improved pedestrian crossing points or traffic calming measures, or street greening works, such as the introduction of trees and grass verges. For more information, visit our Devolved Highways page.

Funding decisions will be announced at Multi Ward Area meetings in spring 2023.

For more information on the Devolved Highways programme, email us or call 020 7525 2461.
