Community groups and organisations in Holderness are being invited to apply for grants from three local wind farm funds to help develop projects that will benefit their area.
Applications can now be made to the Burton Pidsea Community Wind Farm fund and the Tedder Hill Community Wind Farm fund for grants for projects that are of public benefit, including charitable, educational and not-for-profit activities.
The closing date for applications to both funds is 31 March 2019.
Funding is also currently available from the Withernwick Community Wind Farm fund to which applications can be made all year round with the next meeting to decide current applications due to be held on 21 March, 2019.
Bids can be submitted to each fund for projects that fall within the fund’s criteria by groups such as community groups and organisations, as well as societies, charities, parish councils, schools and churches.
The Burton Pidsea and Withernwick community wind farm funds each receives an annual donation from the wind farm owner, Energiekontor while the Tedder Hill community wind farm fund receives an annual donation from owner Ventient Energy.
The combined value to the local community of these funds is over £70,000 per year.
Each fund has an independent decision-making panel comprising of local representatives from parishes within the area of each fund, the wind farm owner and East Riding of Yorkshire Council, whose rural policy and partnerships team manage the fund.
