Landfill Tax Credit Scheme funding is available for Warwickshire projects through a partnership between Biffaward and the Warwickshire Environmental Trust.

There are two categories of grant – small grants of up to £5,000 and larger ones of up to £50,000. Projects that can be supported include the provision and maintenance of public amenities and work to conserve or promote biological diversity. Such projects could include village halls, community rooms, Internet cafés, skate parks, play areas, nature reserves, green spaces and historic parks. Projects must be within 10 miles of a Biffa Waste Services operation.

Over the past two years the partnership between Biffaward and the Warwickshire Environmental Trust has funded 25 projects ranging from play areas to waste education projects with grants totalling £680,000.

Biffaward is the multi-million pound environment fund managed by the Royal Society of Wildlife Trusts. The Warwickshire Environmental Trust (WET) helps organisations and individuals access funding from the Landfill Tax Credit Scheme and administers any funding received on their behalf.

Jonathan Nobbs, Assistant Fund Manager for Biffaward, said: “Working with a local organisation such as WET means we can be sure our funding is used effectively at a local level and that really worthwhile projects get the support they need to improve the quality of life for local communities.”

Initial applications are made to WET and, following initial assessment by the Biffaward Advisory Panel, full applications are then submitted to the Biffaward Board.

New applications are welcomed from organisations who think their project meets the criteria for funding. Contact Louise Boffey, WET’s Administrator, for advice on 01926 418005.
