Through our Clyde Extension wind farm we make around £382,000 per year available for community and charitable projects. Over its lifetime we expect to invest £7.5million in local projects.
Additional funding is committed to the regional Sustainable Development Fund. This fund runs every two years and supports transformational projects across the South Lanarkshire local authority area.

The Clyde South Lanarkshire Extension Fund is split into three separate funds which cover:

Applications are open for the Biggar, Duneaton, Symington, Quothquan & Thankerton fund. Eligibility and other information can be found on the fund guidelines document and application form below.
