Improve the overall biodiversity of habitats including woodlands, ponds, rivers, meadows, green spaces and the wider countryside.
Improve breeding or habitat conditions for particular species, e.g. planting nectar rich plants for bumblebees.
Expand the biodiversity resource within the 36 Conservation Target Areas (CTAs).
Improve the quality, quantity and/or coverage of voluntary species recording in Oxfordshire and Berkshire (funded by TVERC).
Access
TOE supports projects which improve local green spaces and the accessibility and quality of the rights of way network, including:
Creating new links, circular routes and traffic-free routes
Replacing stiles with gates
Improving path surfaces, signs and route-marking
Promoting the wider use of the countryside and green spaces, and linking with local facilities.

Natural climate solutions through habitat creation and better habitat management
Production of wood fuel through managing local woods for biodiversity
Encourage the reduction, reuse and recycling of waste
Improve water efficiency

Eligibility Criteria

TOE can fund not for profit organisations including voluntary groups, Parish Councils, charities and Community Interest Companies.

Location of Projects

TOE’s priority is to support projects located in Oxfordshire, but consideration can be given to projects which straddle county boundaries or which benefit communities in Oxfordshire and its immediate neighbourhood. TOE is keen to see its funds distributed across the county; they are unlikely to support several projects within one community. Projects to be funded with landfill tax credits must be less than 10 miles from a registered landfill site.
Requirements

TOE generally only funds projects at sites where there is some level of public access. Please note that any projects funded through the Landfill Communities Fund must have public access for a cross-section of the community for a minimum of 2 days or 4 evenings a week, unless they are biodiversity projects addressing the needs of a priority habitat or species which can take place on private land with no public access.
