Sustainable Development Fund

Sustainable Development Fund

Grants of £1,000 to £5,000 are available to eligible businesses or projects that represent sustainable development

Priority will be given to projects on the Eastern side of the Shropshire Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB). The Fund can support a range of activities including practical work and awareness raising. You don't have to live or work within the AONB, you must simply demonstrate that your project represents sustainable development which will benefit the AONB. Priority areas include climate change, energy conservation and renewable energy, as well as influencing patterns of recreational use by visitors and locals alike - perhaps you would like to produce an environmental leaflet to educate your visitors about walking and cycling opportunities in the AONB? this could potentially be covered.

For further information on how Shropshire Tourism could help you produce such print material and for signposting to further information regarding this grant scheme - call Claire Jones at Shropshire Tourism on 01743 261919 or email enquiries@shropshiretourism.co.uk

Hurry - expressions of interest need to be received asap! If you are then invited to full application, the deadline for submission is March 10th 2010.
