A major £2.3m project to cut carbon in the Lake District is looking for a consultant to assess its impact.
The Low Carbon Lake District Fund is a comprehensive programme to help tackle climate change working in partnership with local businesses and communities.
Delivered by The Lake District Foundation, the Fund is led by the Lake District National Park Authority, other key partners include the National Trust, South Lakeland District Council and Cumbria Tourism.
The 47 projects funded so far include solar PV, air source heat pumps, insulation, LED lighting and energy management systems.
Embleton Spa Hotel (pictured above) received a food composter which is reducing waste going to landfill.
Rookhow Quaker Meeting House – a 300-year-old community facility in the Lyth Valley benefitted from an air source heat pump as part of its redevelopment and re-opening (pictured below).
The Low Carbon Lake District Fund opened for applications in April 2021 and will be completed by March 2023.
At the half-way point the Lake District Foundation seeks a consultant for an Evaluation Report.
The report would help us understand the impact of the project, identify areas for improvement, and articulate key outcomes that may be useful for further projects.
