Walney Extension Community Fund Survey Results Published

dong-logoIn November 2014, DONG Energy was granted planning permission for an extension to the operational Walney offshore wind farm. The site will be located in the Irish Sea off the Cumbrian coastline.

GrantScape has been working with DONG Energy to undertake community consultation to begin to shape the Walney Extension Community Fund. The first stage of the consultation took the form of a simple online survey which was conducted over the Summer 2015. Hundreds of people completed the survey and a summary of the survey findings is now available, please click below to view the summary:


Thanks to everyone who took part.

What Happens Next?

There will be additional consultation undertaken by the end of December 2015 with Local Authorities and the community and voluntary sector. Public events will also be held early next year, which all members of the community are invited to attend, to find out more about the Fund and to further share their views on where and who should benefit. Details of where and when these events will take place will be on our website and circulated to all contacts on our distribution list, nearer the time. We would encourage as many people as possible to attend the event closest to them.
