The Middlemoor Wind Farm Community Fund will invest over £1.6 million into local community activities and projects throughout the lifetime of the wind farm. The annual fund opened in 2013 and is index linked in line with inflation. In 2022 it was worth £111,000 per annum. The area of benefit for the fund was initially be limited to the immediate local area of Eglingham Parish. After the first three year review of the fund the panel have agreed to extend the criteria slightly to allow consideration to be given to applications from groups and organisations outside of Eglingham Parish that provide services and activities that are deemed by the Fund to be of benefit to residents of the Parish.
Setting up the fund, in May 2013, an independent charity, Community Action Northumberland, conducted a consultation on our behalf with the communities in Eglingham Parish. The purpose of this consultation was to establish the type of projects and initiatives that could be supported through the community investment fund.
