Landfill Communities Fund (LCF) Project Applicant Survey

16 Dec 2015

In August 2015 we undertook a sector wide survey of LCF project applicants with the following aims:

  • Gather information on project applicants' experience of the LCF;
  • Ascertain how easy or difficult project applicants found applying for and accessing LCF funding from Environmental Bodies (EBs) and Landfill Operators (LOs);
  • Investigate any barriers experienced by project applicants in accessing LCF funding; and
  • Gather information that will support the future regulation and development of the LCF.

The LCF Project Applicant survey was sent to project deliverers that had received LCF funds and completed one or more projects, funded by the LCF, between 1 April 2013 and 31 March 2015. This represented a potential distribution list of 4,842 projects. At the close of the survey in September 2015 we had received 1,002 responses to the survey.

We have carefully analysed the results of the survey and a copy of the results of our analysis are published on the right hand side of this page.

Thank you to all of the project applicants who submitted a response to the 2015 LCF Project Applicant Survey.
