Send in your expression of interest ASAP


We have now committed over £1million of our project funding budget to 28 projects.  We are still working on the basis that all remaining funds will be committed by the end of March 2019 so if you are interested in applying please submit your Expression of Interest as soon as possible.  There may be some limited flexibility on timescales so if you have an application which may require a bit longer to pull together (e.g. because of planning) then please get in touch to discuss likely timescales.

If you are an agricultural business, please note we have put on hold any new Expressions of Interest for drills  - we will review our remaining budget in December / January and decide whether we can progress these.  If you have any questions on this please get in touch.
