Burton Wold Community Wind Farm Fund


The Burton Wold Community Wind Farm Fund has been established on behalf of Laing Construction to provide grants to projects which benefit residents in the parishes of Burton Latimer and Cranford.

The fund will support a range of charitable, educational, environmental and general community amenity projects to benefit residents in the local community around the wind farm site. It will be available for the lifetime of the Burton Wold Community Wind Farm and Northamptonshire Community Foundation is the fund's independent administrator.

Is my group eligible?

• Your project can be for new project activity, start up costs for a new group or service, or can build upon the good work you already do.

• Revenue and Capital projects are eligible.
