Community involvement

Working with your community

We're keen to play a positive role in your community. That's why we'll be working with residents and community groups in your area to:

  • offer a Community Benefit payment when the wind farm starts operating, payable annually throughout the operational life of the wind farm;
  • set up a Community Liaison Group so that we can keep you informed and listen to what the community has to say; and
  • use local labour to build and operate the wind farm wherever possible.

If the Camster II Wind Farm is built, the Community Benefit payment will be £5,000 per annum, index linked*, for each MW installed and available during the operation of the wind farm. 

Please note that offering a Community Benefit payment does not affect your right to give your comments and opinions on our planning application.

* Linked to the Retail Prices Index (RPI), as produced by the Office of National Statistics or any other body which may produce the RPI in the future
