Council have identified a funding opportunity through Urban Innovative Actions (UIA) up to a maximum of EUR 5Million ERDF co-financing to support and grow the circular economy within our Borough and prioritising the social economy as a key enabler.
One of the project objectives is to influence consumption patterns through the encouragement of reusing / repairing / recycling materials, creating a behaviour change within the Borough utilising an existing established re-use facility.
The project aim is to:
Test new, innovative, bold and unproven ideas addressing interconnected waste challenges and experiment how these respond to the complexity of real life.
Proposed Project Approach – Expression of Interest (EOI)
Forming a stakeholder action group. Under the EOI, all interested agents must confirm how they would undertake and manage elements of this project, incorporating the existing re-use facility and providing any established case studies / references.
Interested parties can submit an EOI for one or both elements of this project. Council welcome EOI’s from delivery partnerships.
The Elements are as follows:
1) Social Enterprise Groups/Charities/Other Organisations
2) Owners of Local Premises/Facilities
The EOI is a MANDATORY part of the application process – only those who submit an EOI and are eligible will be invited to attend a future Open Day/Assessment.
