South West Peak

Roadshows have now been set up by Support Staffordshire to give local communities more information about the South West Peak Landscape Partnership and to offer a chance to get involved. The one in the Moorlands will be at Warslow Village Hall on Wednesday 24th June from 4pm to 8pm (drop in anytime). For more information go to www.southwestpeak.co.uk

Wind Turbine Community Fund

Severn Trent Water is offering an exciting opportunity for local community groups and projects to apply for funding.

A community grant has been made available as part of their wind turbine development at Curborough Sewage Treatment Works, Lichfield. The turbine will have a 500kW capacity and be 50m tall to its hub or 74m tall to the tip of its blades. It will play an important role in Severn Trent’s target to provide 50% of their energy requirements from renewable sources by 2020.

South West Peak

Support Staffordshire is a member of the partnership which was successful in reaching the development stage of a Landscape Partnership bid with the Heritage Lottery Fund for the South West Peak.
