Tedder Hill Wind Farm Community Fund currently receives an annual donation from the developer. Find out more about funding information for communities here.
In September 2009 planning permission was granted to build a wind farm on land at Pilmar Lane, Roos. As part of the planning consent, the original developer made a commitment to pay a lump sum of £100,000 (now largely spent) and thereafter annual payments of c. £6,000 (index-linked) into a community fund.
Ventient Energy now owns the wind farm and with it, the commitment to make annual contributions into the Tedder Hill Community Wind Farm Fund.

Applications for over £500 should be made online to the main fund. There are no upper or lower limits on the amount of money that can be requested, however, the fund panel have indicated that applications over £10,000 would be considered exceptional.
Applications for £500 should be made to the Small Grants fund. This is a simpler application process for very small one-off projects. Unlike the main fund (which is open to receive applications for three months), the Small Grants fund is open year-round.
Please also see the 'How do I submit an application?' answer below.
The fund panel will wish to see evidence of applicants own contribution to the project costs. This could be in the form of cash, grants, or donations, including materials or equipment loan and, or in-kind volunteer time. In certain circumstances 100% of costs may be given.
Decisions on how the money is spent are made by a fund panel made up of representatives from the following organisations:
East Riding of Yorkshire Council is the Accountable Body for the fund and provides the secretariat and administration service through the council's Rural Policy and Partnerships Team.
The main fund will be re-opening on Thursday 1 July 2021and closing Monday 15 November 2021.
Applications for up to £500 can be made to the Small Grants fund which can be made at any time and will be considered between panel meetings.
For the small grant option the applicant completes a paper based application using the forms and guidance that can be downloaded from the bottom of this page. The applicant completes the form and returns it to the administrator via email. The application is then circulated to the panel for a decision and if the application is approved by a majority the applicant is informed and the grant is paid directly into the group/organisations account without the need for an invoice. In most cases this process should only take approximately 14 days from application to decision.
For applications to the main fund:
Applications to the main fund (over £500) should be made online within the Flexi-Grant system:
