£20m for London’s community projects

London’s town centres, high streets and local regeneration projects will benefit from £20 million in funding made available by the Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan.

As part of the third round of his Good Growth Fund, the investment will help Londoners play a key role in shaping the future of their communities, by supporting projects which boost local economies, improve the environment and bring people together. With almost 300 street and covered markets in London, Khan’s office claimed that 15 markets in London have benefitted from £12.4 million in funding since he came to office.

Khan said: “I’m proud to support London’s markets and in the next round of my Good Growth Fund, I want to continue supporting innovative projects which celebrate London’s diversity. This funding is part of my wider strategy to improve town centres and high streets. I am determined to address some of the big challenges facing our communities and ensure Londoners have a big say in the future of their city.”

Across the previous two funding rounds, the Good Growth Fund has awarded just over £50 million to 108 local projects and is delivered through the London Economic Action Partnership (LEAP).
