More Than £100,000 Available to Local Projects Via Sustainable Development Fund


A new round of grant support is open to projects that provide social, environmental, economic or cultural benefits for Pembrokeshire people, with more than £100,000 available.

The Pembrokeshire Coast National Park Authority’s Sustainable Development Fund (SDF), which has helped more than 200 projects since 2000, is now being administered by PLANED.

Park Authority Director of Planning and Direction, Jane Gibson said:

“We are encouraging new innovative and creative projects to come forward and follow in the footsteps of the exciting and diverse range of schemes that SDF has supported over the past 20 years.

“Any potential applicants should contact PLANED at the earliest opportunity to ensure they receive the support they need to give their application the greatest chance of success.”

PLANED Chief Executive, Iwan Thomas added:

“We are very much looking forward to working more closely with the National Park Authority, as partnership working is a key aspect of our work at PLANED this something I look forward to developing even further.

“Being able to administer the SDF fund, supporting new and exciting projects across the county, builds on our experience of supporting innovation in rural communities over the last 30 years.”

The decisions over which projects will receive funding will continue to be made by the National Park Authority’s SDF Committee, which will next meet on 10 April 2019.
