Answered By:

58 pocket park projects in total have been allocated funding. 2 pocket park projects have been completed with the remaining in various stages of delivery. The majority are planned to be completed during 2014. The current grant round will result in further schemes being selected, providing funding to support the establishment of 100 pocket parks by the end of my current term.
