  • Private or for-profit organisations.

Penarth Times:

Those applying must ensure the space or spaces they wish to target are publicly accessible and that they have permission from the relevant landowner or landowners. Evidence of this must be included.

Decisions on whether a grant will be award will be based on the following:

  • Does the project have public or particular appeal to local residents?
  • Will the grant increase biodiversity or enhance a local green space?
  • Is there a perceived level of need for the project?
  • How much will the grant support the local projects?
  • Will the benefit remain in the community?
  • Does the project have transparent aims?
  • Will the grant make the project viable?
  • Does the applicant have appropriate governance and/or constitutional arrangements?
