Solar Farm Community Benefit

Following an agreement made in 2016 with Sandridge Solar Power Limited which has provided an initial community benefit fund payment of £34,425.14, Melksham Town Council has set out how this money has been assigned to initiatives that provide a community benefit.

£13,316 has been used to part fund the replacement of the derelict paddling pool in King George V Park, closed by Wiltshire Council, with a new toddler play facility; £6,359.04 has been used to supplement the monthly grass cutting of King George V Park and the Cemetery such that the grass in these key important community amenity areas within the town is cut on a fortnightly basis; £9,750.00 has been assigned to replace the 3 bus shelters in a very poor condition at Beanacre Road opposite Nortree Motors, Beanacre Road close to McDonalds, and New Broughton Road, with new facilities; and £5,000 has been assigned to accrue a financial contribution to fund the provision of a new splash pad water play facility in King George V park.

“The Town Council is committed to spending this money on goods or services for the environmental, social or economic benefit of the community” explained Town Mayor Cllr Adrienne Westbrook “This money has been assigned to good effect in financing important initiatives within the town that would otherwise have to be funded through the precept.

 We will keep a public record of any further monies received under the terms of this agreement and detail how they are to be spent, and this will be available to view on the Town Council’s website and  be publicised through the press and social media” added Councillor Westbrook.
