Following the Government's reforms to the Landfill Communities Fund (LCF) we published draft guidance on Budget Day 2016 relating to the reform of the LCF, agreed with HMRC and covering:
- Third Party Contributions;
- Running Costs; and
- Record Keeping.
Environmental Bodies (EBs) have had the opportunity to comment on the draft guidance and on Wednesday 23 March we will publish the updated guidance manual. The guidance manual has been refreshed across all sections in addition to the revisions necessary following the reform announcements. The new manual aims to be more succinct with a clearer layout to enable EBs to more easily understand their obligations within the LCF.
Responding to feedback from EBs we have also taken this opportunity to update the content and navigation of the ENTRUST website. The updated navigation will make it easier for all stakeholders within the LCF to find the information they need.
The updated website will go live on Wednesday 23 March, along with the updated guidance and we will publish further information then regarding the changes. We anticipate a small interruption of no more than a few minutes whilst this takes place.
