Burnthouse Farm Wind Farm Community Benefit Fund

Applications for funding for charitable projects are  invited by constituted groups (not individuals) based in a 5 mile radius of the Burnthouse Farm Wind Farm (which is located outside Turves, Cambridgeshire). 

Charitable projects will be supported if they demonstrably benefit a material proportion of the local community by supporting their use and enjoyment of the local area and/or contributing to a positive community spirit.

Grants will be offered in the range of £250 to £6,000 from the £24,000 annual funding that REG Windpower, the wind farm developer, are contributing to the community benefit fund each year.

Applications are invited throughout the year but decisions will only be made at two fund panel meetings scheduled to take place in the Spring and late Autumn. To be considered at the panel meeting in March 2014, applications and supporting information must be submitted by 28 February 2014 at the latest.
