National Grid Landscape Enhancement Initiative (LEI)
*** UPDATE 2 February 2019 – WE ARE NOW CLOSED TO APPLICATIONS ***
The Cotswolds Conservation Board has issued a call for projects for the National Grid Landscape Enhancement Initiative.
This £24 million grant scheme offers awards of up to £200,000 for projects to enhance landscapes containing or impacted by National Grid’s existing electricity transmission infrastructure.
Only the Board can apply to the National Grid for this funding and we are inviting partners to put forward projects.
The Board has selected pylon line ZF2 which runs between Coberley and Alderton for our first call for projects as it is judged to have the highest impact of any line within the Cotswolds AONB.
The deadline for submitting expressions of interest to the Board is the 1st February 2019 for projects commencing in December 2019.
