Hillhead of Auquhirie Wind Farm Community Fund
The Hillhead of Auquhirie Wind Farm Community Fund opened for applications on 1 May 2019. Applications to the fund can be made from groups and projects which benefit the communities living in the community council areas of:
- Catterline, Kinneff & Dunnottar
- Stonehaven & District
Octopus, the energy company who developed the Hillhead of Auquhirie Wind Farm, has established the Community Fund which will see £12,420 per year (index linked) available to support local community projects during the 25 year lifetime of the wind farm.
Octopus is one of the world’s leading independent renewable energy developers who play a vital role in developing and constructing projects that contribute to Scotland’s energy supply.
The fund is open for applications from 1 May until 31 July 2019. A panel made up of representatives from the community council areas along with a representative from Kincardineshire Development Partnership (KDP) will then meet in August to consider applications.
Application forms and guidelines can be obtained from the KDP office at:
