For every take-off or landing at Farnborough airport, the community environmental fund receives money to help support local projects.

The airport pays a levy of £2 for every take-off or landing, or £5 if the aircraft is a Boeing business jet or an Airbus A310 corporate jet.

This money goes into the Farnborough airport community environmental fund, which we manage. For aircraft movements in 2022 we received £67,200 for this fund. There is currently £108,320 available for grants.

We consider applications every month, until all the funding runs out. 

Your organisation can only be awarded one council grant in a financial year (a community, ward or Farnborough airport community environmental fund grant). The financial year runs from April to March. 

Projects the environmental fund has already supported

The type of projects the fund has already supported include pond improvements, canal towpath upgrades, improvements to open spaces, gardening clubs, wildlife projects, new cycle ways and cycle projects, outdoor activities, music events, and play equipment.
