Scottish Rural Development Programme (SRDP) 2014-2020: EIR release

Information request and response under the Environmental Information (Scotland) Regulations 2004

Information requested

1. The average acreage per application for approved projects under the SRDP 2014-2020, andÍž

2. To confirm the types of organisations that received funding under the Forestry Grants Scheme under the SRDP 2014-2020.


The SRDP 2014-2020 covered multiple individual schemes and not all these schemes were area based and not all applications within an individual scheme were area based. Therefore it is not possible to provide information to your first question as acreage is not a requisite requirement for all projects.

I have consulted with Scottish Forestry on your second request as they administer the Forestry Grants Scheme. Scottish Forestry are unable to provide information on the types of organisations that have benefited from the Forestry Grants Scheme as they do not ask for this information from applicants.

I am sorry we are unable to provide the information you have requested as we do not hold such information.
