“The project has begun to demonstrate the


potential for sport to be a tool for, and to be a beneficiary from such community-led approaches. This is an approach central to Barking and Dagenham’s vision, and after this success, officers are keen to support others who might wish to do the same, be that in their local park, or one of the many green spaces across the borough that might be re-imagined as a pocket park.” His advice for those seeking to take this


approach is to consider the rules around recipients of capital funding and the procurement process, neither of which are particularly supportive of this approach. “As a community, you may have done all this


work, but the council will have to put in the application because they are the landowner, which can also restrict the funds for which you’ll be eligible. This process also requires the funder to accept the approach and general plan for the construction rather than the exact details.”


“Such a community-led process requires


working closely with a provider who is prepared to draw up multiple designs, and be flexible to consultation, and ultimately to funding decisions, this means a lot of work must be done on faith, and with one designer. It was a good thing that Lisa and Avril had received quotes from other play equipment providers before engaging PlayInnovation to

support this process because even though the money had been secured by the community, because of this approach, it was officially awarded to the local authority and they are of course bound by procurement rules.”
