Northumbrian Water Environmental Fund


The County Durham Community Foundation administer a fund under the Landfill Tax Credit Scheme on behalf of Northumbrian Water.
Northumbrian Water welcomes applications for grants up to 1000 (although, applications for projects at a slightly higher level may be considered), for the purchase of items associated with small external landscaping projects, for example:

  • Seats/benches and tables for picnic areas
  • Trees and shrubs
  • Planters/raised beds
  • Water butts
  • Composting
  • Bird boxes/animal boxes

If you have a project that may fit and you are interested in applying for a grant under this fund you need to complete an Expression of Interest form which is available from www.countydurhamfoundation.co.uk

Upon initial approval of that form you will be asked to complete a full application pack. If you would like more information please contact Brenda Dye, Grants Officer for the County Durham Community Foundation on 0191 383 0055
