The 2018 process is now closed
The establishment of Routh Wind Farm Community Fund formed part of the planning agreement when permission for the Hall Farm Wind Farm was granted in 2011. The Fund received its first donation in March 2014.
The wind farm is now owned by John Laing plc who is obliged to continue with the original commitment to the Community Fund and provides an annual donation of £36,000 to the Fund.
The Fund is designed to promote initiatives for public benefit within a defined area (the area of benefit). The following types of projects are eligible for help from the Fund:
- Charitable activities
- Educational activities
- Community activities
- Energy efficiency activities
- Environmental activities
- Community amenities.
The area of benefit of the fund is the East Riding of Yorkshire with a preference for applications for projects within the proximity of the wind farm.
