Capital grants available for farmers in Wales to improve water

July 27, 2020 at 2:30 PM

Land managers and farming businesses in Wales can apply for funding to carry out projects to improve water quality and reduce the risk of flooding under the Glastir Small Grants Scheme. 

The Water Theme offers Capital Works that have been chosen for their broad and general environmental benefits and would include projects such as new hedgerow planting, hedge laying, tree planting, guttering and pond restoration. 

 “If you wish to be considered for a grant you will need to submit an Expression of Interest (EOI), which is available online via the Rural Payments Wales (RPW) Online facility,” said Kathryn Williams of Davis Meade Property Consultants.

“The window for Expressions of Interest for the Water small grant scheme is open from July 27 until September 4, 2020.”

To enable the Welsh Government to select those EOIs that offer the highest environmental value for money, all EOIs will be scored and ranked, with contracts being offered to the highest ranking EOIs. Each land parcel has been awarded a different number of points by RPW, depending on the specific activity and the combination of target objectives it overlaps with, and this is shown during the online application process.   

Glastir Small Grants forms part of the Welsh Government Rural Communities - Rural Development Programme for Wales 2014-2020, which is funded by the European Agricultural Fund for Rural Development and the Welsh Government.
