Construction Community Benefit Fund Now Open!
Cloncreen Wind Farm has launched a Construction Community Benefit Fund (“The Fund”) to facilitate the support of local communities during the construction phase of the project. The Fund is open to local community based project groups and voluntary organisations located within, or working with, communities in the vicinity of the development or turbine transport route.
Each funding application will be evaluated on a case by case basis in accordance with the eligibility criteria outlined in the Fund Terms and Conditions. As per the Fund Terms and Conditions, only one application per group, per year may be submitted. To view the full Terms and Conditions, please click here.
If your group would like to apply for funding, please click here to complete your application. Note, submission of an application does not guarantee funding.
Groups or organisations requiring help or support with their application can contact the project team via firstname.lastname@example.org with their enquiries, or alternatively call the project Community Liaison Officer directly on 087 3486624 for assistance.
Similar to Mountlucas Wind Farm, amenity facilities (such as utilising the internal road network for walkways/cycleways) will be incorporated as part of the Cloncreen project. Approximately 21 km of internal road network will be constructed as part of the development.
In addition, to enhance the amenity potential of the site, the project team are continuing to develop a wider amenity plan for the wind farm.
