As part of the Section 106 agreement for the construction project, Somerset Community Foundation will be managing the £13million Hinkley Point C Community Fund to help local communities maximise the social, environmental and economic benefits of the development. Somerset Community Foundation is looking forward to playing an important role in supporting communities most affected by the construction of Hinkley Point C over the next decade.
We will start to work with local communities, local councils and other stakeholders in early 2017 to define the priorities for the fund and expect to launch it in the second half of next year.
Meanwhile, funding is available from the Hinkley Point Community Impact Mitigation Fund, managed by West Somerset Council. You can read about the Fund here:
