The second round of the Landscape Recovery is now open for applications with funding of up to £750,000 for an individual project available. The fund will offer up to 25 of the highest scoring projects a place on the scheme. Applications close on 21 September 2023.

Landscape Recovery funds long-term, large-scale, bespoke projects designed to enhance the natural environment and deliver significant environmental benefits. The second round of Landscape Recovery will focus on projects in which farmers and landowners come together across at least 500 hectares to target net zero, protected sites and habitat creation. This could include landscape-scale projects creating and enhancing woodland, peatland, nature reserves and protected sites such as ancient woodlands, wetlands and salt marshes, alongside the sustainable production of food.
