Community Benefits

Vigilant Global has a strong record of philanthropy and is committed to supporting the communities in which we work, being good neighbours and sharing the benefits of our projects. Over recent months we have worked hard to engage with the local community and prepare a range of proposals to benefit the local area. These discussions are ongoing, and we continue to seek new partners and opportunities. From supporting local schools, to making a significant financial contribution to the local area, we have endeavoured to make sure everyone in the local area benefits from our development.

Find out more about our wide-ranging commitments, which would be delivered following planning consent and once the mast is operational, including a Community Benefit Fund managed by the local community providing a minimum of £2 million over the operational lifetime of the mast:
