Organisations, parishes, and landowners are being asked to bid for funding to create new countryside paths, or restore old ones, as part of a post-pandemic Government project. 

The Countryside Access and Wellbeing project aims to “strategically link” paths across the Island and £750,000 has been allocated from the COVID-19 Health and Social Recovery Fund. 

Successful applicants will be responsible for all aspects of the creation and future maintenance of the path. 

Minister for the Environment, Deputy Jonathan Renouf, said: ‘We have seen through the pandemic that the countryside and ecology of the Island offer an incredibly important resource, which can contribute to the personal wellbeing of Islanders. 

‘The pandemic has brought people and communities together and it is important that we continue to build on these silver linings. 

‘We hope that this funding will bring Islanders together to work on access projects that will have a positive impact on our beautiful Island and on the ability of Islanders to enjoy the natural world.’

Anyone interested in applying is encouraged to contact Julia Clively from Natural Environment on 441600 before proceeding with an application.
