Burton Wold Community Wind Farm Fund

The Burton Wold Community Wind Farm Fund has been established on behalf of Laing Construction to provide grants to projects which benefit residents in the parishes of Burton Latimer and Cranford around the wind farm site.

The fund will support a variety of educational, environmental, charitable and general community amenity projects and will be available for the lifetime of the Burton Wold Community Wind Farm.


The Northamptonshire Community Foundation is the fund’s independent administrator.

Before completing the application form, we strongly recommend you fully read through the fund’s guidance – helping to avoid mistakes that could delay an application.

Please speak to the grants team via our contact us page before you make a new application.

Example projects that may apply for funding include:

  • Training and volunteering schemes

  • Pocket parks and green spaces

  • Arts and preservation of local heritage

  • Youth clubs and safety schemes

Is my group eligible?

  • Your project must be based in and benefit residents of Burton Latimer and Cranford

  • Your project can be for new project activity, start up costs for a new group or service, or can build upon the good work you already do.

  • Revenue and Capital projects are eligible.

  • Your group must be a small, locally managed, voluntary, community or self-help group. Parish Councils are also eligible to apply for non-statutory activity. Please note that as a general exclusion we do not fund social enterprises with persons with significant control (PSC).

  • We wish to fund small projects primarily. We will offer grants of up to £5,000, however, larger projects will also be considered. 

  • You should have people volunteering to help with your activity, who are not part of your management committee.

  • You must have a set of written rules or constitution that your group adheres to. We can help advise you on how to do this especially if you are a new group.

  • You must take care to ensure that young people or vulnerable people taking part in your activity do not come to any harm whilst in your care. To this end, you must have written procedures for keeping young people and/or vulnerable people safe otherwise known as a Child Protection or Vulnerable people’s policy.  You will also need an equalities policy in place. This will be needed as a condition of funding. If you do not have such a policy, visit our Help for Groups section.

Upcoming closing date for applications:
