Communities in Donington and Swineshead could have access to a large pot of funding for projects that make “a real, long term and sustainable difference to the local area” if a planned windfarm goes ahead around 20 miles away from Lincolnshire. Triton Knoll Offshore Wind Farm developers have released a survey to collect views about who should benefit from the funding, what should be supported and how allocation decisions should be made.
The questionnaire is available online at www.surveymonkey.com/r/LNDLW52 or hard copies are available from Boston Borough Council’s offices in West Street.
All responses must be completed by 5pm on 26 February 2015. So make sure you let them know what your view is on how the money should be spent!
