Planning obligations

Langford and Biggleswade Windfarm Community Fund

Application deadline ahead of local elections

Please submit your application by 1 March 2023, so we have time to process the application and decisions prior to the pre-election period, which runs from 13 March 2023 to 5 May 2023.

What is the Langford and Biggleswade Windfarm Community Fund?

We receive an annual contribution of £24,000, to be distributed as small grants to groups for delivering projects in the parishes of Langford and Biggleswade for the benefit of the residents in those parishes. This is due to the Section 106 Agreement accompanying the planning permission which says that the owner must pay an Annual Community Fund Contribution of £24,000.

Who decides how the funds will be allocated?

The Langford and Biggleswade Community Fund Group (LBWCFG) is set up to manage this funding, and is made up of representatives of the following organisations:

  • Central Bedfordshire Council
  • Langford Parish Council
  • Biggleswade Town Council
  • the owner / developer
  • one co-opted member

In accordance with the Section 106 Agreement, the LBWCFG has agreed criteria to decide what local community projects will receive financial assistance, and to what extent that assistance is given. These are described in the guidance and application form.
