Langford and Biggleswade Windfarm Community Fund
The Langford / Biggleswade Wind
Farm comprises ten 110m high wind turbines and a substation building on land to
the north of Edworth Road, Langford and south of Biggleswade between the A1 and
the East Coast Mainline Railway line.
The Section 106 Agreement that
accompanied the planning permission for the Wind Farm requires the owner to pay
an Annual Community Fund Contribution of £24,000.
This fund must be distributed as
small grants to groups for delivering projects in the parishes of Langford and
Biggleswade for the benefit of residents in those parishes.
Applications for financial
assistance can be made by any group or organisation providing that the project
they wish to use the funding for is located within the Parish Boundaries of
Langford and Biggleswade, and / or will support primarily the residents of
Langford and Biggleswade.
