Cumbria Local Enterprise Partnership (LEP) is planning to hold a free workshop for those interested in applying for funding under ERDF Priority 4 on Tuesday 31 January 2017 at the LEP Conference Centre, Redhills, Penrith. Typically Priority 4 focuses on Low Carbon Growth - including innovation, energy efficiency, heat networks, renewable energy and whole place low carbon solutions.  

Woodland Carbon Fund

Forestry Commission England have opened a new grant that will allow millions more trees to be planted across the country helping to meet future carbon targets.  Maximum grants available will range between £6,800 and £8,500 per hectare depending on its location, with the higher rate available where there is an access need and permissive access is granted. Discretionary footpath access payments will also be available.
