Published : 20/04/23 | Categories: Funding |

We are pleased to announce the tenth round of the Landfill Disposals Tax Communities Scheme (LDTCS) is now open to applications. For main grants between £5,000 – £49,000.

Deadline for applications: 10 July 2023, successful projects will start in October 2023.

If you have a project idea which would benefit the community, check out your eligibility by visiting our website and using the map to see where eligible sites are.

The LDTCS funds projects with a focus on Biodiversity, Waste Minimisation and the reduction of Waste to Landfill and Wider Environmental Enhancements.

The previous nine rounds of LDTCS have funded some great projects which are making positive environmental enhancements in their locality with the support of the community. From the reintroduction of pine martens to reuse of discarded plastics, there is a variety of activity happening across Wales.

You can read more about the projects already running in Wales from here.


We receive a high number of applications which makes the funding process very competitive. If you would like support and guidance in the development of a project you can contact your local Third Sector Support Wales CVC here.
