Why we need funds

The developers who propose the wind farms have deep pockets, unfortunately the community does not. To fight a successful campaign the organisation will need funds which will be used for

  • Employment of professional advisers such as planning consultants, noise engineers and landscape engineers.
  • Payment for publicity materials such as posters, brochures etc.
  • Hire of hall for meetings.

And of course there will always be other costs we have not thought of! The committee’s calculations suggest that an initial sum in the region of £17,500 may be required and we are asking everyone to donate as much or as little as they can afford. It may be a cliché but “every little helps”.
