Little Cheyne Court Community Investment Fund survey
The Little Cheyne Court Wind Farm Community Investment Fund has already invested over £460,879 into the local area community since the wind farm started operating.
RWE Innogy UK in conjunction with the Kent and Sussex Community Foundations who administrate the fund, have launched an online survey. The objective is to gather feedback from the local community on the way the fund operates to make sure it really suits the needs of local people.

Results from the survey will be shared here in due course.
Little Cheyne Court Wind Farm started exporting electricity to the National Grid in 2008. The 26 turbine wind farm is located on Romney Marsh near the Kent and Sussex border. It is one of the largest wind farms in the south of England. With an installed capacity of 59.8MW, Little Cheyne Court Wind Farm generates enough clean energy to power the equivalent of around 32,5001average UK homes.
Every year Little Cheyne Court Wind Farm helps to offset the release of thousands of tonnes of carbon dioxide, making a valuable contribution to the fight against climate change.
A habitat management group, which includes representatives from English Nature and the RSPB, has been established, and a community liaison group, made up of local residents, meets regularly to discuss the construction. Shepway Friends of the Earth have supported the wind farm and said:
"Congratulations to the npower renewables team for overcoming the many obstacles that might have stopped this wind farm from getting the go ahead. We supported you from the onset and I am proud to say that the Little Cheyne Court Wind Farm has been the most important and successful campaign we have ever been involved in."
