Ulley: Wind farm to fund local community projects
The grant came from the Penny Hill Wind Farm Community Fund which is owned by Banks Renewables. There are plans to provide over £500,000 of community funding over the 25 year lifespan of the wind farm which has been ring-fenced for use within the parishes of Ulley, Aston, Thurcroft, Whiston and Treeton.
The money will be used to make a positive long-term differences to local voluntary groups, environmental projects and community facilities.
