Changes to Funding Zones in England

Wednesday 06 December 2017

SUEZ Communities Trust is reducing the size of its funding zones in England.

From Monday 8th January 2018 a project must be within 2.5 miles of a qualifying site, rather than 3 miles. 

We appreciate that some organisations which were previously eligible for our funding will fall outside of a funding zone once this change takes effect. However, the funding we have available to distribute is reducing as a result of declining landfill activity and the demand for our funding has remained high. We need to adjust our funding strategy to reflect the amount of funding available and ensure that applicants have a reasonable chance of success. 

If you are planning to submit a stage 1 application for a project site which is between 2.5 and 3 miles from a qualifying site you must do so by Sunday 7th January 2018.

Stage 1 applications which have already been submitted, applications for projects sites which are less than 2.5 miles from a qualifying site, projects in Scotland and those which have already been submitted at stage 1 will be unaffected. 

You can easily check if your project site is within 2.5 miles of a qualifying site using the postcode checker.

The postcode checker will be updated in due course to reflect this change.
