Coast, Wolds, Wetlands and Waterways Funding Programme Update
15th February 2017
You were asked to consider and prepare your Outline Applications (OA) for submission from April 2017. However, we are pleased to inform you that we are ahead of schedule and we are now happy to receive your OA from this point forward.
As previously advised, please visit www.ruralprogrammeseastyorkshire.co.uk for all information and guidance. Please enter your post code into the post code checker and complete the' Am I Eligible?' form to see if you are eligible for grant aid under the LEADER Programme.
For your information the Rural Payments Agency (RPA) have advised that the OA form will be simplified and replaced by a more focused Expression of Interest (EOI) Form from early April 2017. Please refer to the website for regular updates. The team will contact potential applicants if this affects anyone part way through the process.
Please do not hesitate to contact the LEADER Team (see contacts below) if we can be of assistance.
About the opportunity
As a volunteer surveyor, you will be positioned at locations around Flamborough Head and Filey Brigg throughout the busy tourist season. You will be recording any recreational activities you see, particularly noting whether the seabirds respond to human presence. You will be assigned 4 locations (which will need to be surveyed for one hour each) and we ask that volunteers commit at least one day a week to this project.
Are you passionate about protecting marine wildlife? Do you have a special interest in whales, dolphins, porpoises? Could you help us to learn more about Yorkshire’s cetacean populations by regularly carrying out surveys?
