Grants

Grants are available to farmers and landowners who have land available to plant woodland, buffer strips and hedges within the Aire catchment.
We will be able to link landowners to full funding under the Leeds Flood Alleviation Scheme.
This will enhance existing land features to reduce the speed of water entering the river without affecting productivity.
