Burbo Bank Extension Community Benefit Fund – forthcoming public exhibitions and consultation survey summary

The Online Consultation Survey Summary for the Burbo Bank Extension Community Fund has now been published. DONG Energy will establish a Community Benefit Fund (CBF) worth up to £250,000 per annum for the lifetime of the Burbo Bank Extension offshore wind farm in Liverpool Bay (amount dependent on final scale of the project). The consultation sought views from the local community on how the CBF should be set up, including the ‘funding zones’, types of projects to benefit and size of grants to be awarded. Over 360 people responded to the consultation, with around a third of these responding as individuals. The CBF will be launched in Spring 2015 with first applictions expected in Autumn 2015 and a series of exhibitions (see below) is planned to publicise the fund. To see the report follow this link.
