Tedder Hill Community Wind Farm Fund currently receives an annual donation from the developer. Find out more about funding information for communities here.
In September 2009 planning permission was granted to build a wind farm on land at Pilmar Lane, Roos. As part of the planning consent the developer E.ON Climate and Renewables UK Developments Limited made a commitment to pay a lump sum of £100,000 and then annual payments of £5,000 into a community fund.
The ownership of the development has since transferred to Infinis, the company that also own and operates the Lissett Community Wind Farm and with it the commitment to create the Tedder Hill Community Wind Farm Fund.
The purpose of the fund is to promote sustainable development, education, citizenship, community development and environmental protection and improvement.

The area of benefit for the fund is the East Riding of Yorkshire, with a preference for appropriate schemes or projects within 5 kilometres of Roos Post Offices. For the avoidance of doubt the post code of Roos Post Office HU12 0HP shall be used as the central point for the 5 kilometre radius.
