Community Impact Mitigation Fund overview

The Hinkley Point C Site Preparation Works application was consented by Somerset Council on the 27 January 2012.

In granting the planning application a series of measures to mitigate the impact of the works were secured. One of these was the creation of a £7.2million fund known as the Hinkley Point C Community Impact Mitigation (CIM) Fund.

How to apply

Information on the Hinkley Point C Community Fund is available on the Hinkley Point C Community Fund website. The fund is open for applications for community projects that aim to mitigate impacts of the Hinkley Point C developments or that maximise opportunities that Hinkley Point C offers for local people.

The Hinkley Point C Community Impact Mitigation Fund supported more than 50 projects and a list is available on request.

If you would like to discuss your application, or seek advice from the council before applying to the Community Impact Mitigation Fund, please contact 01278 435435 or email community.services@sedgemoor.gov.uk. We can offer advice and support to guide you through the process and advise on the likely reliability of any projects.
