£5m Boost for Timber Transport Funding
The scheme to minimise the impacts on communities and on the environment caused by timber lorries on the rural road network is to benefit from a £5m boost from the Scottish Government.
The 2017 Strategic Timber Transport Fund (STTF), managed by Forestry Commission Scotland, will now offer £7.85 million of co-funding support to projects that strengthen public roads and reduce disruption by timber haulage.
This award of additional money for 2017/18 means that the scheme can deliver even more community, social and environmental benefits.
If you would like to discuss any opportunties for accessing this funding please contact our Head Forester Ben Lennon on 01463 235753 or firstname.lastname@example.org
