Wind turbine applications have provoked much controversy with in the parish but whatever
side of the fence one may be, there is going to be a community benefit paid to the
Parish by the developer.
With the turbine now up and running at Trevozah, Mr. M. Quinn, the developer has
agreed to pay the Parish an annual sum of £2,500 and a one off payment of £15,000
towards a community project. Due to tight restrictions on how the Parish Council
can spend public money with a limited amount of discretion, it has been decided to
set up a separate body or trust to administer the community benefit. There are several
other applications for wind turbines going through the planning stages and if successful,
quite considerable amounts of money will be paid into the community benefit. There
has been called a public meeting to discuss how this new trust will function and
who will administer it. The aim is to maximize community involvement and ensure fair
representation of local organisations and individuals.
