Community impact mitigation fund

Former West Somerset Council granted planning consent for Site Preparation Works at the Hinkley Point C (HPC) site on 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 HPC Community Impact Mitigation (CIM) Fund.

The CIM Fund has now closed for new applications.

Information on the HPC Community Fund is available on the HPC 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 HPC offers for local people.

The HPC CIM Fund supported more than 50 projects and a list is available on request to us at Somerset West and Taunton Council.
