The Hillhead of Auquhirie Wind Farm Community Fund opens for applications on 1 December 2020. This fund has been delayed due to the Covid-19 pandemic but will return to the normal schedule in 2021.
Applications to the fund can be made from groups and projects which benefit the communities living in the community council areas of:
Fern Community Fund, the energy company who maintains the Hillhead of Auquhirie Wind Farm fund, sees £12,523 per year available to support local community projects during the 25-year lifetime of the wind farm.
The fund is open for applications from 1 December 2020 until 28 February 2021. A panel made up of representatives from the community council areas along with a representative from Kincardineshire Development Partnership (KDP) will then meet to consider applications.
The Meikle Carewe Wind Farm Community Fund opens for applications on 1 November 2020. Applications to the fund can be made from not-for-profit groups and organisations based in the following Community Council areas:
The energy company RES has established a community fund which will see more than £25,000 available to support local community projects every year during the lifetime of the Meikle Carewe Wind Farm. The fund is administered by Kincardineshire Development Partnership (KDP) and managed by a Decision Making Panel made up of representatives from the local Community Councils.
The fund is open for applications from 1 November to 31 January 2021. The Decision Making Panel, along with a representative from Kincardineshire Development Partnership (KDP), will then meet to consider applications.
It is with regret in light of the current COVID19 situation that the St Johns Hill Community Fund will temporarily close and Hillhead of Auquhirie will not open at this time.
They will remain closed until further notice and reopen for 3 months in the future when the restrictions have been lifted. It is hoped this action will help by not applying additional pressure on groups to make sure applications are submitted on time.
The community council areas affected are: Arbuthnott, Catterline, Kinneff and Dunnottar, Mearns, and Stonehaven.
If you have any questions regarding this, please contact KDP on the below email address.
Keep safe everyone.
