News & Star - 23/05/08

A COMMUNITY has been told that it is in line for a ?375,000 windfall if a windfarm which developers want to site on its doorstep, gets the go-ahead.

Bolsterstone Plc says it will submit a planning application in June to put up three wind turbines at Cumwhinton.

If Carlisle City Council grants permission, a community fund would be set up ? giving ?15,000 a year for its 25-year lifespan.

This would provide ?375,000, which would be managed by the local council. It could be spent on improving local facilities or energy efficiency in the community, or be put towards educational projects.

Snouts. Trough. Unexpected pot of money. 'nuff said.
