COMMUNITY BENEFIT FUNDS
The parish benefits from community funds arising from renewable energy developments, in particular:
The Tedder Hill Wind Farm
Tree and Hedgerow Planting Opportunity.
As part of the formal planning agreements for the Tedder Hill wind farm £10,000 was awarded to Heywoods for tree and hedgerow planting within 5km of Roos Post Office.
Although the wind farm became operational in late 2013, applications so far have been low in number and to date, ONLY about £2000 has been awarded.
Heywoods are now welcoming formal applications from private and public landowners for new tree, woodland and hedgerow planting initiatives.
The deadline for the submission of applications will be 31st July 2018. Decisions will be made in September / October 2018
