June 2021 updated Guidance related to the LCF and COVID-19

16 Jun 2021

In March 2020 we issued a guidance note on the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the Landfill Communities Fund (LCF) and Environmental Body (EB) obligations. This guidance was published on our website and sent by email to the main contact of all EBs. This guidance was reviewed and updated in June, September, and October 2020, and January 2021.

We have now further updated this guidance and the updated guidance note is published on the right hand side of this page, and also on the COVID-19 page of our website. The COVID-19 page sets out a timeline of all ENTRUST advice, guidance and information which has been published and you can also review the previous guidance notes on this page. All updates relating to COVID-19 will be added to the page, as well as published as a news item on our website, and where relevant, emailed to EB main contacts.

The main update for this version is to confirm that we will not be carrying out any more blanket extensions for project end dates but extension requests can still be sent to the Helpline in the normal way and no request will be unreasonably withheld.

We will keep all guidance under review, in line with the Government advice during this unprecedented time. If EBs have any further questions which are not addressed in the current guidance note they should email Helpline@entrust.org.uk
