Local community fund

Since 2012 we’ve awarded over £1 million to local community projects. 

The Bristol Airport Environmental Improvement Fund provides £100,000 each year to support projects in local parishes including the villages of Winford, Wrington, Backwell, Brockley, Cleeve and Barrow Gurney.

Projects need to meet at least one of the criteria set by the Fund. The Fund’s Management Committee meets on a quarterly basis and all applications need to be received at least two weeks prior to the meeting dates. If you need advice or assistance regarding your project please contact the Community Fund Administrator.

Please note, if you are a local resident interested in applying for a noise insulation grant, a separate application form and guidelines can be found here.
