Actions for communities

Communities, developers, local councils and devolved government all have a role to play in strengthening community benefit in Northern Ireland.

The Fermanagh Trust makes a series of recommendations as to how communities can do so:
  • A not for profit organisation to take the lead role in establishing good practice guidance including a policy on community engagement and promoting a toolkit on community benefits.

  • All local communities to take an active role in relation to a wind farm development being considered in their community exploring the range of community benefits which can be provided.

  • Local community based organisations to examine and where possible develop and implement wind farm development based on community ownership models.
