We will enrol organisations and approve their projects within five working days of a complete application being made providing that all the correct information is supplied to us at the point of application and no changes are required to ensure the eligibility of the organisation or project. Where further information and/or changes are required, the time taken will depend on the speed with which that applicant responds with information and implements changes.
Q. Can I start a project as soon as I have enrolled?
You should register your project once you have secured funding from a Landfill Operator (LO) or another Environmental Body (EB). Keep in mind any deadlines given to you by the fund provider before registering your project with us. The project must be registered before any work starts or any funds are spent.
Q. I’m not sure whether my project idea is eligible to receive funding from the Landfill Communities Fund (LCF). How do I find out?
Projects can be registered in England or Northern Ireland. Have a look at the Objects page and our Guidance Manual (Part 4: submitting a project) to see if your project idea fits with any of the areas that are eligible for funding. If you need further information contact our Helpline and we will advise you whether your project is eligible or not.
Q. What should I do if my project changes after I have submitted it to you for approval?
Let your funding provider know of any changes and contact our Registrations team to inform them of any changes to your project application as soon as possible. Changes to your project will need to be agreed by your funding provider and then by us before you can continue.
Q. Where can I find a list of people who will fund the project I wish to undertake?
Within the Landfill Communities Fund (LCF) there are two types of organisation that can fund a project. These are Environmental Bodies (EBs) who distribute funds on behalf of Landfill Operators (LOs) and LOs themselves . You can identify funders in your area through our funders search. The list of registered landfill operators is available from the HM Revenue and Customs Website.
