Routh Wind Farm Community Fund open for applications

Thu, 07 Feb 2019

Community groups and organisations in the Routh, Tickton and Leven area are being invited to apply for grants from the Routh Wind Farm Community fund.

Applications can be made by organisations such as community groups, parish councils, schools and churches for projects that are of public benefit including charitable, educational and not-for-profit activities.

The fund receives an annual donation of almost £41,000 a year from the wind farm’s operating company, J Laing and an independent decision-making panel comprising of local representatives from parishes within the area, the wind farm owner and East Riding of Yorkshire Council, will assess applications and award grants.

In the past, the fund has supported a wide range of projects from local community buildings to sports clubs and youth groups.

The closing date for applications to the fund is 31 March 2019.

The fund is managed by East Riding of Yorkshire Council’s rural policy and partnerships team who can be contacted via email – ruralfunding@eastriding.gov.uk or by telephoning (01482) 391655.
