A Community Fund has been made available as part of the Triton Knoll Offshore Wind Farm development.

The communities neighbouring the Triton Knoll Onshore Electrical System works are being invited to take part in a second consultation exercise to determine how the project’s Community Fund will be managed in the future.

Triton Knoll Offshore Wind Farm will support two funds:

• A £500,000 One Off Construction Community Fund – which will be delivered to local areas neighbouring the onshore electrical system works.

• An Annual Community Fund of £40,000 per year – which will focus on communities neighbouring the landfall location near Anderby Creek, as well as the above ground infrastructure at Bicker Fen, and which will be available for every year that the planned offshore wind farm is in operation.

The consultation exercise will run from Monday, November 6 to Monday, December 4. All consultation responses must be received by 5pm on 4 December, in order to be considered.

Drop-in sessions are taking place as follows:

• Thursday, November 9, 3pm to 7pm - Bicker Village Hall, Cemetery Road, Bicker, Boston, Lincolnshire, PE20 3BT
