A new round of grant funding for initiatives in and around the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park that cut local carbon emissions and respond to climate emergencies has been made available.

The Pembrokeshire Coast National Park Authority is urging local non-profit organisations to submit applications for the Sustainable Development Fund before the September deadline, for which a sum of more than £100,000 is available.

Are you the administrator of a community building that would benefit from solar panels or an air-source heat pump? Do you wish to encourage your members or guests to utilise bicycles and require a bike rack or electric bike charging station? Would your sports club wish to build a water fountain to limit the use of single-use plastics? Or perhaps you have a plan to reduce trash, such as a community refrigerator or recycling programme.

Jessica Morgan, Funding and Grants Officer for the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park Authority, said: “If you are seeking funding for a project in Pembrokeshire that contributes towards carbon reduction and helps respond to the climate emergency, the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park Authority’s Sustainable Development Fund may be for you.

“Organisations are welcome to reapply if they have completed a previous Sustainable Development Fund project and can demonstrate that the work has been completed and the post-project evaluation has been submitted.

“Unfortunately, we cannot accept applications from individuals, sole traders or businesses. Any organisation that applies must be based within Pembrokeshire.”

The Sustainable Development Fund is comprised of funds granted by the Pembrokeshire Coast National Park Authority and the Sustainable Landscapes and Sustainable Places Fund of the Welsh Government.
