Countryside Enhancement Scheme

May 17, 2022

Islanders are being asked to submit their ideas for any environmental projects that could qualify for a grant to help conserve and enhance rural areas in Jersey.

The Countryside Enhancement Scheme (CES) has been running since 2006, and supports projects that benefit the natural environment, locally or on an international level.

The head of Biosecurity in Jersey says it is a great opportunity for applicants to make a difference to the island's unique landscape.

Scott Meadows, Head of Biosecurity said: “We welcome applications from farmers, growers, land managers and owners, businesses, charities, schools, government departments and the general public. This year applications can be made online before 24 June 2022.”

The CES has backed many previous projects that have benefited Jersey's environment and wildlife, including those led by The Pollinator Project and The National Trust for Jersey.

People can view the scheme guidance notes and have until Friday 24 June 2021 to submit their applications, which can be found on Jersey government's website.
