In December 2014 DONG Energy decided to construct the Burbo Bank Extension offshore wind farm. The site will be located west of the existing Burbo Bank operational wind farm in Liverpool Bay. To find out more about the project development itself, please click here
DONG Energy has committed to a Community Fund worth approximately £225,000 each year for the lifetime of the Project. Grants from £500 up to £25,000 are available.
Following a detailed community consultation process, the Burbo Bank Extension Community Fund is now open to applications.
There are two application closing dates each year. The next application round is detailed below. Late applications submitted after a closing date will be processed in the next round (approximately six months later).
To be eligible to apply for a grant your project must be located, and for the benefit of communities within the funding area. (Please note the area of benefit also includes the coastal tidal zones directly in line with the onshore areas, and includes the estuary areas of the rivers Dee and Mersey following across the 5km line).
