The Sustainable Development Fund (SDF) is a Welsh Government initiative that aims, through partnership, to develop and test ways of achieving sustainable development in a countryside of great natural beauty and diversity, in which the local characteristics of culture, wildlife, landscape, land use and community are conserved and enhanced. The Authority is responsible for administering the scheme within its area in accordance with operational guidelines stipulated by Welsh Government.
To provide an effective, efficient, fair and transparent process the SDF Committee meets as required to assess applications for the fund. The Committee consists of six Authority Members and six non-Authority members (two from each of the private, public and community sectors).
The six non-Authority members sit on the Committee in an advisory capacity and decisions are made by Authority Members.
More information on the Fund can be found on the Sustainable Development Fund pages of the website.
