KDP is delighted to share the 2021 Annual Report for the Hillhead of Auquhirie Community Fund.
Fourteen Local Groups Benefit from Wind Farm Community Fund
Last month, funding worth a total of £33,141.10 was awarded to a range of local groups and projects in the area of benefit of the Meikle Carewe Wind Farm Community Fund.
RES, a leading independent renewable energy developer, established the Meikle Carewe Windfarm Community Benefit Fund to support local groups and projects. Funding is available for the benefit of not-for-profit groups and organisations in the Community Council areas of Crathes, Drumoak & Durris, Newtonhill, Muchalls & Cammachmore, North Kincardine Rural, Portlethen & District and Stonehaven & District. Administered by Kincardineshire Development Partnership (KDP), applications to the fund are assessed by a Decision-Making Panel made up of representatives from all five Community Council areas. The fund is available annually for the lifetime of the wind farm.
