Communities could receive up to £640,000 if wind farm gets approval 

Communities close to the proposed Moorsyde wind farm are set to receive up to £640,000 if the wind farm gets the go-ahead next week.

Your Energy, which is proposing the seven turbines between Shoresdean and Felkington, has already initiated discussions with local charitable organisations to establish who could benefit.

Alexandra Bowers, development manager for Your Energy, said: “A panel made up of community representatives will be formed to suggest suitable projects. There would be a substantial lump sum at the outset to enable larger community projects to get off the ground.

“What the fund goes towards is ultimately up to the local community and a steady annual income stream enables communities to plan long term projects that can benefit their area.”

The funds will be secured in a legal agreement should the wind farm gain planning permission from Berwick Borough Council planning committee next Thursday.

The size of the fund is based on the number of Megawatts installed at the wind farm. In accordance with the Northumberland Protocol for Community Benefits from Wind Farm Developments, it is intended that the Community Foundation for Tyne and Wear and Northumberland will supervise the fund’s financial administration.
