Defra has announced that additional funding of £44,000 in 2014/15 and £5.26million in 2015/16 will be made available to complete the coastal path around England by 2020.

We have confirmed that resource funding for Royal Botanic Gardens Kew will be maintained at the levels in 2013/14 until April 2016. This follows the announcement in September 2014 that an additional £1.5million will be provided in 2014/15, and the announcement today (16 December) that a further £2.3m will be made available for 2015/16.
