We launched the grant scheme today at Cutcombe market.
The aim of this 3 year grant scheme is to support a range of projects and traditional management works that benefit the landscape, wildlife and cultural heritage of Exmoor National Park. Examples could be hedge restoration, river bank protection, scrub clearance, fence removal or prevention of erosion.
This is part of our project called ‘Reconditioning Moorland Character’ – and so of course moorland projects is what we are interested in – but the fund is open to any habitat type on Exmoor. Grants by this fund are up to £2,500 but we welcome hearing about big projects ideas too.
Exmoor National Park Authority’s Partnership Fund has given £100,000 to support the Exmoor Landscape Conservation Grant Scheme and a further £30,000 is available from the Exmoor Moorland Landscape Partnership, which has funds from the Heathcoat-Amory Charitable Trusts and the Heritage Lottery Fund.
