We will be carrying out some updates and improvements to our website and online systems – to make sure that doesn’t affect applications, we will be closing all our Funds temporarily from 5pm on 24 August and re-opening week commencing 3 September.
If you have already started an online application and will be working on it through this period you will not be affected.
The North Pickenham Windfarm Temporis Community Fund (NPWTCF) is funded by Temporis Wind and aimed at small community led organisations that are working in and involving people from the communities within a 5 kilometre radius of North Pickenham Windfarm. The Fund is managed by Norfolk Community Foundation on behalf of Temporis Wind.
The purpose of the Fund is to support community activity that involves local people through small community organisations, and benefits their community. The activities must provide some measure of economic, environmental, educational, social or cultural benefit for people living in the area. Temporis Wind will pay £9,000 annually (effective 1st April) into the fund while the North Pickenham Windfarm is operational. Please note that as of June 2018 the fund has a remaining balance of £1,653.
