The Lanes Activation Fund (LAF) has been established to help activate and enhance city centre lanes. Applications which succeed will be those that invite people who live and work in the city, as well as visitors, to think about lanes more positively. It will also practically assist lane owners, occupiers, residents and communities to develop them as an integral part of a vibrant city centre.
As this is a pilot the LAF will be available for 2 years, before being evaluated.
In terms of the LAF a lane has three stakeholders: the owner-occupiers of the lane, the businesses and/or community that live in or along the lane and those from the Creative Industries. The fund has been created to enable businesses and/or communities to work with artists and creative industries to develop activity in city centre lanes.
