The purpose of the Fund is to support voluntary and community organisations operating near the Chiplow Project – a 4-turbine wind farm project located at Syderstone in Norfolk. This is defined as within a 10 mile radius from the location of the Chiplow Project (PE31 8SR). Projects from further afield can be considered provided the project can clearly show that it will make a difference to those living and working within the eligible area.
Applications can be submitted at any time while the Fund is open, and decisions will be made on a quarterly basis in March, June, September and December.
Priority will be given to projects that will offer the widest community benefit and actively involve local people.
£18,000 is available per year from the Fund in total. Awards from the fund will not typically exceed £5,000 though a larger award may be considered for a project with clear and significant benefit to the eligible area.
