Tamar Valley Sustainable Development Fund

The Tamar Valley Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB) team is pleased to announce that the Sustainable Development Fund (SDF) is open once again for small grants to support projects that help to conserve and enhance the AONB. This year there is £5,000 in total available for grant requests of between £500-£1,000 for projects that will benefit the area.

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.

Tamar Tender Loving Care (TLC) is running a small community grants scheme alongside SDF, for community groups and individuals to access smaller sums of money to help their projects. Four grants of £250 each are available to bid for.

If you have an idea for a project, please get in touch.

  • Closing date for applications – Friday 28 June 2019.
  • Applicants to be notified by mid August 2019.
  • Successful projects must be completed by 31 December 2019 (1 March 2020 for Tamar TLC small community grant).

Please view the guidance notes and application forms on the Tamar Valley website.
