Turbine Fund Grant
Annually Boddington Parish council is allocated an amount from the Boddington Reservoir Wind Turbine Community Benefit Fund for projects that will enhance the community. The grant commenced in 2014 and will continue for 20 years. The base amount was £2,500 but this has been increased annually based on inflation. The grant may be used by the Parish council or by local community organisations. The uncommitted amount available in the fund forms part of the Parish Council reserves and is reported in the monthly Parish Council minutes.
In order to ensure that this fund is fairly allocated to the community, Boddington Parish Council has a Grant Awarding policy which sets out the criteria and timescales involved for organisations wishing to apply for some of this fund.
