The Worcester Liberal Democrats have today shared the details of a new scheme that has been launched to help in the forming or development of natural spaces.
The Natural Networks Programme is a Worcestershire-wide scheme offering grants and advice to projects which aim to create or restore wildlife-rich habitats.
The programme offers free professional Biodiversity surveys carried out by partners of the Worcestershire Wildlife Trust who will assess the project site and make recommendations on how to create or enhance your land to maximise habitats for wildlife.
Grants of £1,000 – £15,000 are available (up to 70% of the total project cost will be available to help carry out the recommendations suggested in the survey).
- Private sector organisations will be expected to match fund at least 50% of the project
- Public or voluntary sector organisations will be expected to match fund at least 30% of the project
The programme aim is to create a natural network of wildlife-rich habitats across Worcestershire that will enhance the quality of our blue and green infrastructure.
