South Hill Parish Council

Community Benefit Fund

The Community Benefit Fund is a sum of money that South Hill Parish receives from the Solar Farm development  at Trefinnick Solar Farm. The Council are inviting any residents of the Parish to contact the Parish Council either by email or coming to one of the monthly meetings and put forward their ideas of how to put these funds to use. There are various rules regarding how the funds can be spent:

  • to use the Community Benefit Payment for charitable, educational, environmental, amenity or other appropriate purposes within the areas of the Community and, wherever possible, to apply the Community Benefit Payment towards the promotion of sustainable energy and uses
  • not to use the Community Benefit Payment for political, religious, entertainment or hospitality purposes, or for any purpose adverse to the Operator's interest in the scheme

The final decision on how these funds will be allocated lies with the Parish Council.
