RWE npower renewables - developers of the Little Cheyne Court Wind Farm

Winds of change


  • Provide a broad range of support to RWE npower renewables throughout the planning and construction of Little Cheyne Court, the largest onshore wind farm in the south east. 

  • Promote support for a landmark renewable energy project in the region from initial consultation, through planning, a public inquiry and judicial review to construction, completion and formal opening.

Results and highlights

  • Working closely with the RWE npower renewables, Maxim assisted in the development of a comprehensive consultation and communications programme.

  • A series of successful community consultation exhibitions were organised. 

  • Local and national print and broadcast publicity was managed by Maxim, which also involved hosting press visits.

  • Widespread local support was secured, resulting in many letters of support for the scheme from local residents, environmental groups – both local and national – and business representatives.

  • A community liaison group and freephone service were established to help ensure good communications with local residents during the construction phase of the wind farm.

  • A community benefit fund was established.

  • A formal opening by the then Secretary of State for Energy and Climate Change, Ed Miliband MP.
