Closure of the LCF in Wales - 31 March 2020

10 Jan 2020

Following the cessation of the Landfill Communities Fund (LCF) in Wales on 31 March 2018, there are now just 11 weeks left before the transition period ends on 31 March 2020.

Environmental Bodies (EBs) with approved projects in Wales are reminded that their projects must be completed, and all LCF funds spent, by 31 March 2020.

Any EBs in Wales who still hold LCF funds, which are not allocated to registered projects or for wind up costs which have been agreed with ENTRUST and HMRC, should now transfer these remaining funds to an operating EB 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.
