New guidance regarding the protection and monitoring of projects and assets in Scotland

27 Oct 2015

We have published new guidance to provide information for all Environmental Bodies (EBs) on the monitoring and protection of Landfill Communities Fund (LCF) projects and assets in Scotland during and after the end of the transitional period.

The LCF closed in Scotland on 31 March 2015. There is a two year transitional period to enable LCF projects in Scotland to be completed and for all remaining LCF funds in Scotland to be spent. The transitional period runs from 1 April 2015 to 31 March 2017. EBs can continue to register projects in Scotland with ENTRUST during the transitional period but all projects in Scotland must be completed by 31 March 2017.

Guidance note 9.5 applies to all EBs which have responsibility for monitoring or protecting LCF assets or projects in Scotland. You can read the full guidance note on the right hand side of this page and on the guidance page of our website.
