Chichester Harbour grant up for grabs

CHICHESTER Harbour Conservancy is looking for a special project to celebrate its 100th grant award from the Sustainable Development Fund.

The Sustainable Development Fund is now in its eighth year.

The fund supports projects that bring social, environmental or economic benefits to Chichester Harbour Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB).

So far Chichester Harbour Conservancy has awarded £455,000 in grants to 99 projects, with a total project value of £2.8million.

The maximum grant available is £5,000, paid retrospectively.

Projects must be completed and the grant claimed by the end of March 2013.

This is a competitive scheme and grants that meet the criteria are awarded on a first come, first served basis.

For inspiration and details of projects funded over the last seven years, please go to www.conservancy.co.uk or call Nicky Horter on 01243 510983.
