Landfill Communties Fund in Wales now closed

6 Apr 2020

The Landfill Communities Fund (LCF) closed in Wales on 31 March 2018, and the transitional closure period ended on 31 March 2020.

All enrolled Environmental Bodies (EBs) based in Wales are required to complete a Statutory Annual Return (Form 4) for 2019/2020. ENTRUST will then conduct a final compliance review of the activities of the EB and assuming there are no outstanding issues, ENTRUST will approve the automatic cessation of enrolment with the LCF. ENTRUST will confirm in writing when enrolment in the LCF has ended.

EBs which do not complete a Statutory Annual Return for 2019/2020 will not be eligible for this automatic cessation of enrolment and will be placed on the 'Frozen' List and subject to enforcement action. 

If you need any help to complete your final Statutory Annual Return please email
