Veolia does advise the projects must be open to the wider general public for at least 104 days a year
Although the scheme can be seen as a continuous rolling project, and applications could be accepted at any time, Veolia do point out because their Board of Trustees meet and consider applications only FOUR times a year, they advise their next deadline is 30th May 2019, with further dates to announced later in the year.
