Southwick Parish Council

Solar (Community Benefit) Fund

 Invitation to Apply for funding from the Solar Fund

Do you

  • or a group of friends have an idea or a project to improve things for people living in Southwick but lack the necessary funding?
  • or do you belong to an organisation that needs funding support?

Background

Following on from protracted negotiations with developers during the planning processes for Solar Farms in Southwick, your Parish Council reached contractual agreements that mean we are now receiving annually, “community benefit funds” to be used by the Parish Council “as it sees fit, as long as the use of funds is to the benefit of residents”.

This year we have received £1,000 from the Bradley Road Solar Farm.

Our Funding Ambition as a Parish Council

All applications will be considered on their merits by the Parish Council.  Our wish is that any grant is used as “capital funds” to create an ongoing lasting impact or legacy.  We do not wish to support/subsidize normal running expenses.

Applications

We therefore welcome applications both from Southwick Village and others providing Southwick Residents will benefit. 

We are minded to fund an appropriate number of applications under £500.

All applications will be considered on their merits by the Parish Council.  Our wish is that any grant is used as “capital funds” to create an ongoing lasting impact or legacy.  We do not wish to support/subsidize normal running expenses.

Funds not allocated this year will be carried forward to next year's round of applications.  Applications must be received by the Parish Clerk by 30th May.

Please note that any grants awarded must be claimed by the 31st December.

Application forms are to be found on the home page of Southwick Parish Council or are available from the Parish Council Clerk.application form
