Swinford wind farm
Overview of Swinford wind farm
During construction, Vattenfall ran a youth project with the Rural Youth Voice Project to involve young people in the development of the project and the community fund. At the end of the project, they produced a film about the potential of the project from their perspective. Also during the construction process, a Swinford blog was established to keep the community informed.
A community fund is now in operation, run by the Eight Parishes CIC. They administer the annual grant of £44,000 from Vattenfall for the benefit of the local community.
