St John’s Hill Wind Farm Community Fund

Hillhead of Auquhirie Wind Farm Community Fund

 

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.
