The Scheme encourages activities that help native wildlife and restore, maintain and enhance natural habitats, create community green space, and encourage prevention, re-use and recycling of waste, including food waste and composting initiatives. It will also fund the creation of green infrastructure – such as allotments, hedges, green roofs, parks and gardens – improvements to community facilities and activities to bring neglected and run-down areas back into community use.
Applications are welcomed from all sectors. Check out the scheme guidance document on the website for more information about what the scheme will fund.
