All Growing Places Fund bids will be assessed against a set of published criteria. Whilst there are no specific criteria relating to carbon emissions, the environmental impacts of all the bids will of course be a consideration in the decision making process. Bids will be assessed in terms of their strategic fit with the Growing Places Fund Prospectus and other Mayoral policies including environmental policies and the Mayor's transport strategy. Projects will be assessed by a multi-disciplinary team and the GLA will utilise its in-house environment expertise and TfL to provide advice on funding bids as appropriate.
