The Sustainable Development Fund (SDF) is there for the benefit Chichester Harbour Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. It is open to local communities and businesses as well as groups wishing to visit the protected area. Applicants can apply for funding using a simple application form, which is available on request.

Sustainable development is about promoting ways of living and working that allows people to enjoy life, businesses to prosper and communities to thrive. At the same time, it is about enhancing the natural beauty, wildlife and cultural heritage of Chichester Harbour and affording opportunities for an understanding and enjoyment of its special qualities by the public.

In order to apply for a grant from the Sustainable Development Fund, you will need to propose a project idea. A project is a distinct piece of work to be carried out, is additional to the usual day-to-day activity of an individual or organisation.

As of October 2014, all of the funds available for this year have been allocated; therefore the SDF is now closed. Please either revisit this page in 2015 for news about the availability of grants, or contact Judi Darley, Community Officer, to discuss your initial project ideas.
