Exmoor Landscape Conservation Grants

Exmoor National Park Authority has teamed up with the Exmoor Moorland Landscape Partnership to provide a fund to support projects that benefit the landscape of Exmoor.

Exmoor National Park Authority’s Partnership Fund has given £70,000 to support the Exmoor Landscape Conservation Grant Scheme and a further £30,000 is available from the Exmoor Moorland Landscape Partnership, which has funds from the Heathcot-Amory Charitable Trusts and the Heritage Lottery Fund.

The aim of this 3 year project is to provide grants to assist with a range of works that contribute to the landscape, wildlife and cultural heritage of the National Park. Please note that this is a competitive grants scheme. You may submit applications for different projects, but the maximum grant per holding is £1,800 per year. You may submit two applications if one is moorland-based and one is not.

The Exmoor Knotweed Control Project

Japanese knotweed is one of Britain’s most invasive weeds, and is posing a real threat to some of the native flora and fauna of Exmoor. Both Japanese knotweed and its cousin, Himalayan knotweed can be seen along many watercourses on Exmoor, such as the Lyn and the Heddon, and also along hedgebanks and roadside verges. 

The Project is currently able to support landowners by offering to treat the knotweed on their land.
