It does not hurt to be prepared – we recommend that
applicants start as early as possible. A six month run up
period is average whilst it is not uncommon for complex
projects to take two years to develop.
Please note a copy of the concept note template can be
found on the 'What we do' page on this
website. We will review concept notes at any time of year and
will also pre-screen draft proposals.
Please ensure you read the relevant call literature, including
the guidelines for applicants; the evaluation guide; FAQ.
These are available on the Commission’s LIFE
website. For more hints and tips please see the common pitfalls
Please note that these proposals, provided by Natural Resources
Wales, Natural England, WRAP and the Environment Agency, were
submitted prior to the current eProposal system, and are not in the
current format (please refer to the current revised 2016
Application Guidelines for full details). These examples are
intended to be a reference used for illustration purposes only, and
should not be seen as a definitive proposal.
