Supporting improvements to where people live, work and play by focusing on Covid recovery and green growth at a community level.

Green Communities

underline

The Green Communities project aims to bring people and nature together, for the benefit of the environment and communities; enabling communities to transform their local area into a more desirable place to live, work and visit; increase opportunities to volunteer locally outdoors while also creating opportunities for wildlife to flourish.

The Green Communities project is supported by the Welsh Government’s Enabling Natural Resources and Wellbeing fund. This means that projects and initiatives are required to integrate the principles of Sustainable Management of Natural Resources (SMNR) into activities and community infrastructure.

The Green Communities project will be offering a grant of up to £30,000 to 30 rural communities within Denbighshire, Conwy, Flintshire and Wrexham to participate in the project, which will be selected through an open call process.

Some examples of eligible projects are:

  • Community gardens, allotments and orchards, woodlands, churchyards, rivers and ponds
  • Nature reserves and wildlife areas
  • Community miles to connect communities and green transport including cycling networks and charging points
  • Walking paths and circular walks around villages

If you are a community with an idea for a project within the eligible counties, the first step is to declare your interest by filling in the Expression of Interest form.  Please return this form to Cara Roberts, Project Support Officer by email: cara.roberts@cadwynclwyd.co.uk.

We look forward to hearing from you!
