Could your Project be funded through the Sustainable Development Fund?


A reminder that this year’s Sustainable Development Fund is open for small grants to support projects which help to conserve and enhance the Tamar Valley Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

There is £5,000 in total available for grant requests for projects between £200-£500.

The Fund was first created for AONBs in 2005 to encourage individuals, community groups and businesses to work together to develop practical and sustainable solutions to the management of their activities.

The range of projects previously supported in the Tamar Valley include the enhancement of village halls, wildlife conservation projects, small scale renewable energy schemes, water-based recreation, advice for rural businesses and a number of exciting education-based projects.

If you have an idea for a project, where £200-£500 would help, please get in touch.

  • Closing date for applications – 30 June 2014.
  • Applicants to be notified in July.
  • Successful projects must be completed by December 2014.
