Calling all landowners, farmers, community groups, trusts, charities, town and parish councils, schools and individuals who own or manage land in the High Weald Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB):
If you’ve spent time during lockdown thinking about how you could improve your corner of the High Weald for wildlife or scenic beauty, there may be funding - if needed - through the Sussex Lund 2021 grant programme. The scheme offers grants of up to £10,000 for small-scale, practical projects that improve the landscape and ecology of the High Weald.
Whether you’re thinking of creating a meadow on your land, managing your community greenspace for wildlife or creating new habitat in your school grounds, get in touch with the AONB team now for a chat about your potential project. We can also arrange a socially-distanced advisory site visit from one of our team members to guide your project and application to meet the Fund’s criteria.
The deadline for applications is February 2021, but we strongly recommend making contact as soon as possible as all site visits must be carried out by the end of November 2020. You don't need a detailed plan for your project right now - just an inspiring idea!
