Cornwall Council has created a new way to help communities grow their environment. They have launched a seed fund to provide a starting point for fund raising to pay for environmental growth project ideas. The aim is to support small-scale projects that help create more space for nature in towns and villages across Cornwall and contribute to the delivery of the ambitious Cornwall Environmental Growth Strategy.
Priority will be given to schemes that result in tangible examples of environmental growth, for example new habitats or an increase in the health of native wildlife. Funded projects must deliver a clear and demonstrable benefit to the natural environment.
