Horsham District Community Climate Fund – applications now invited for the next round of funding
In July 2020 Horsham District Council launched a Horsham District Community Climate Fund.
This fund was set up to enable voluntary and community groups to work on projects to help reduce carbon levels locally, reduce the use of resources such as energy and water, and to encourage the minimisation of waste.
After a successful first round of applications, several groups were awarded funding including:
• Greening Steyning for the Greening Steyning 2030 Project
• Horsham’s Springboard who purchased Smart radiator valves to improve the energy efficiency of their building
• St Mark’s Church, Holbrook
• Sustainable Henfield who are introducing Zerowaste bins around Henfield
• Transition Horsham Community Allotment.
The next round of applications are open from 5 April to 14 May 2021 and is your chance to stand out from the crowd and get involved in this vital climate change work.
Fund applications can be related to any of the following themes:
Energy – such as reducing consumption and increasing the use of renewable energy
Water – such as reducing consumption and reducing the threats from flooding
Waste minimization – including reusing and recycling resources, for example using composting bins
Biodiversity – increasing wildlife, such as the creation of pocket parks and community orchards
Sustainable transport – such as encouraging cycling and walking.
