Withernwick Community Wind Farm Fund available for local residents

Wed, 16 Jun 2021

The Withernwick Community Wind Farm fund has a substantial pot of funding available for local residents to apply for home security assessments, including outbuildings, for the supply and installation of equipment for residents living in the parish of Withernwick.  

The aim of the project is to continually reduce burglaries in dwellings and non-dwellings, reduce the risk of re-offending and reduce residents' fear of crime.

Home security assessments and the supply and installation of home security equipment to dwellings and outbuildings have been some of the measures carried out previously. 

Referrals will be made to the supplier by Humberside Police, Withernwick Parish Council or the Neighbourhood Watch Group Co-ordinator in Withernwick. Residents should declare their interest in the funding by contacting one of the below email addresses for consideration:

  • Humberside Police, the local neighbourhood officer PCSO, Darren Bainton (darren.bainton@humberside.pnn.police.uk)
  • Withernwick Parish Council, clerk to the parish council, Mr Bryan McMahon  (clerk@withernwickparishcouncil.org.uk)
  • There is also a neighbourhood watch group at St. Albans Close and residents there can apply through the NHW co-ordinator, Suzanne Marshall.

The following services will be available:

  • Shed Alarms;
  • Security Lighting;
  • Snap Locks (Windows);
  • Window Alarms;
  • Door Chains;
  • Door Viewers;

Councillor Kerri Harold, portfolio holder for public health and tackling inequalities at East Riding of Yorkshire Council, commented: "Taking security measures to protect our homes from the risk of burglary is extremely important so it is fantastic to see residents in Withernwick can apply for this funding from the Withernwick Community Wind Farm fund. Additional security helps to reduce the fears of crime within our communities so I would encourage the residents of Withernwick to consider taking advantage of this funding whilst it is still available."

Following receipt of a referral form, contact will be made with the beneficiary within five working days. Assessment and the installation of equipment will take place within 20 working days, or at a later time if agreed with the beneficiary. The home security assessment will be conducted by an officer suitably trained to do so.

The Withernwick Community Wind Farm fund receives an annual donation from the wind farm owner, Energiekontor.

Please note, the fund will cease to operate after 31 March 2022.
