How to Apply?

National Grid is inviting applications from AONB Partnerships and National Park Authorities for projects that can deliver reduced visual impacts and landscape enhancements within these protected landscapes.

The online process is simple, streamlined and expert help is available to all applicants.

When you click on the ‘Apply’ link you will be directed to some Eligibility Questions, which will identify if your project is eligible for consideration. You will then be able to complete the ‘Expression of Interest’, which is a short application. This will be assessed by the LEI team and if your project is deemed suitable you will be invited to complete a full application form.

You are encouraged to submit your Expression of Interest as soon as possible because in the event that too many Expressions of Interest are received we may need to close the application window early.


How the process works

Click here to see a diagram showing how the three stage application process works in more detail.

There are two application windows per year. Window 8 is open for expressions of interest until the 14th February 2020.

An application can consist of more than one project (developed by communities or other organisations and groups) into potential funding packages. It should demonstrate the active involvement of wider stakeholders and/or the local community.

If you have carefully read our guidelines and would like to apply please click here.

We ask that all expressions of interest are submitted using our online application. However, you can access a Word version of the form here, which might be helpful when drafting and planning your application.

This form is to be used as a method of preparation for your full online submission. Only online applications will be considered as complete.
