New approach to processing NatureScot Peatland ACTION applications – March 2024 

NatureScot is evolving its approach to supporting peatland restoration in response to this maturing market and the growing demand for support and a new approach to processing NatureScot Peatland ACTION applications to take effect from March 2024. We will be updating our application documents in the coming weeks to reflect this change in the application process. 

Deadline for new applications is no later than 31 May 2024. Initial decisions on these applications will be made by the end of June 2024.  

If you are interested in developing peatland restoration projects please contact us at [email protected] our Project Officers will support you to develop your project, help you understand the Peatland ACTION Fund and assist you to complete your application and supporting information.
