Sober Hill Wind Farm Community Benefit Fund

The Sober Hill Wind Farm Community Benefit Fund is an annual £24,600 index linked fund provided to Newbald Parish by the developers of Sober Hill Wind Farm for 25 years. Payments will continue until 2038.

The fund is exclusive to this parish and it seeks to benefit good causes in the village. It is managed by Newbald Parish Council.

The fund has recently granted money to St. Nicholas’ Church, Newbald Young People’s Project, Newbald Playing Field Association, Newbald Primary School and the Village Hall Management Committee. You can download details of all the money that has so far been received into the fund and the grants made.

The fund is currently suspended due to the coronavirus pandemic. Applications submitted by our last deadline of 23 March 2020 will be considered as and when Members of Newbald Parish Council are able to meet in person again.

Here are links to the application form and the guidelines.
