Grants to help support a wide range of environmental improvement projects have been given to communities across Scotland. 

The money will enable local people to take a hands-on approach to improving their local environment by supporting a varied range of practical ideas.  

Increasing biodiversity by planting more native trees, creating new habitats for wading birds, removing dangerous invasive plant species along riverbanks, installing eco-friendly electric vehicle charge points, and creating new community orchards are just some of the initiatives that will benefit from the Crown Estate Scotland grants.

The Environment Grants form part of the Sustainable Communities Fund which has, since being established in 2020 by Crown Estate Scotland, distributed more than £1.4m to support local regeneration and sustainable development.

One previous recipient of an Environment Grant is the Communities Housing Trust in Skye, which received £20,000 to help renovate the disused Borrodale School and create six new homes.
