Green Communities project
Green Communities is a Welsh Government run project, where a pot of money it allocated to improve green spaces in our rural communities, the project aims to bring people and nature together, for the benefit of the environment and communities. It enables communities to transform their local area into a more desirable place to live, work and play, it also aims to increase volunteering opportunities as well as allowing wildlife to flourish.
We are looking for a number of communities with projects to increase the biodiversity of their local environment and for local residents to be able to benefit from green spaces both physically and mentally. Up to £30,000 is available to rural communities within Denbighshire, Conwy, Flintshire and Wrexham, the projects are selected through an open call process, there is no closing date for applications and the programme will be open and running until the fund of £1.3 million has been allocated.
Examples of eligible project 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
Any community with an idea for a project within Denbighshire and the AONB can declare an interest by contacting Gwenno Jones – Project Officer for more information or a chat. We look forward to hearing from you.
