Community benefits

Creating community value

We establish community funds for every OnPath renewables project to ensure that the benefits are channelled back into the local community. The Marr Wind Farm Community Fund currently receives £11,966.10 each year from the wind farm. Grants are awarded to local voluntary organisations, community groups and environmental projects.

To ensure the funding is channelled to causes and activities important to the local communities, the fund is managed by a Community Fund committee made up of members from the local parish councils as well as the district and county councillors. The committee meets regularly so that local residents can raise any issues with the operation and maintenance of the wind farm.

The Committee agrees how and where grants are awarded based on a range of criteria and the information received in the funding application.

Projects from the parishes of parishes of Barnburgh, Brodsworth, Hickleton, High Melton, Marr and Sprotbrough and Cusworth are eligible for funding and we may consider projects from outside of this area if they will benefit people in the local parishes.
