Chiplow Wind Farm Community Benefit Fund

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.

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.

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. Once all of the funding has been allocated for a year the fund will close and no further applications can be accepted.

Please note that your group will be less of a priority for funding if it is in receipt of Chiplow Wind farm Community Benefit Fund within the last 12 months.
