Grants available for Lincolnshire Wolds conversation projects

Conservation efforts in the Lincolnshire Wolds are set to benefit from two new grant schemes from the Lincolnshire Wolds Countryside Service.

Any group, organisation, individual or business can apply for up to £10,000 for the Sustainable Development Fund.

Smaller grants of up to £1,000 are also available through the Small Grants Scheme.

Each project must help conserve and enhance the Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty or promote economic and social wellbeing within the area.

Up to 75% of total project costs can be applied for.

Cllr Colin Davie, Executive Member for Economy and Place, said: “This is a fantastic opportunity for people further enhance our beautiful county in all sorts of ways.

“We look forward to receiving applications and getting what will undoubtedly be some valuable projects up and running.”
