This scheme aims to improve the overall appearance and amenity of towns and villages in the Formartine area. Grants of up to £500 are available to local groups for projects that have the backing of the areas community council.

Formartine Partnership has been working closely with the Ythan Biodiversity Volunteers (YBV), to source funding for a valuable environmental project. Began in 2014, this project aims to control the spread of and eventually eradicate two damaging invasive plant species in the Ythan River catchment; giant hogweed and Japanese knotweed. This work on the Ythan has far reaching potential, and could show how other river systems throughout Scotland can deal with the problems posed by INNS.
