Cash for National Park projects

Grants are being offered to help projects get off the ground in the Dales.

Around £100,000 is available from the Yorkshire Dales National Park Authority's Sustainable Development Fund (SDF).

Individuals, businesses, community groups or voluntary sector bodies can apply for cash.

Andrea Burden, the Authority's Sustainable Development Officer, said: "This year we had £140,000 in total and, so far, about £40,000 has been allocated.

"That means we still have a large amount of grant money available and we would love to hear from people who have great projects - no matter how big or small - they either want to get started or that are ongoing and need some financial help.

"The project may be nothing more than a collection of thoughts and ideas, but that doesn't matter. An SDF grant can pay for the help and advice that will turn them into something more concrete.

"All that we ask is that the project should contribute in some way to looking after the National Park's natural beauty, wildlife or cultural heritage, or it should promote opportunities for the public to understand and enjoy those things - while at the same time providing some local economic or community benefit."
