The Wandsworth Local Fund (WLF) is a charge the council makes on developers which is then used to benefit the local area.

Since Wave 1 opened in 2015, more than £9m has been spent on projects to benefit local communities including improvements to parks, sports pitches, children’s playgrounds, roads and public open spaces.

Applications are invited for projects that meet the priorities local people have said are important. These include:

  • Improvement of public spaces including protecting biodiversity
  • Community safety
  • Street improvements such as pavements, lighting, tree planting, cycling facilities and street furniture
  • Investing in sports and leisure facilities
  • Improving traffic and parking

If you have an idea for a project to improve your neighbourhood, get in contact with your ward councillors. Find out who they are.

The deadline for applications for round seven of the Wandsworth Local Fund is 1 July. Find out more at www.wandsworth.gov.uk/WLF.
