Following the cessation of the Landfill Communities Fund (LCF) in Wales on 31 March 2018, there are just six months left before the transition period ends.
Project registration for new LCF projects in Wales ended on 30 September 2019. Environmental Bodies (EBs) with projects in Wales are reminded that their projects must be completed, and all LCF funds spent by 31 March 2020.
Any Welsh EBs who still hold LCF funds which are not allocated:
- to registered projects; or
- for wind up costs which have been agreed with ENTRUST,
Should now transfer these funds to an EB operating in England or Northern Ireland, or register a project in England or Northern Ireland. Any LCF monies held at 1 April 2020 by EBs in Wales will be subject to HMRC clawback.
If you are an EB based in Wales and you have completed your LCF activity and you have no outstanding LCF monies, you should consider requesting voluntary revocation from the scheme.
If you have any questions about the closure of the LCF in Wales please contact our Helpline on 01926 488 300 or by emailing [email protected]
