After a significant delay, the St John’s Hill Wind Farm Community Fund will open for applications on 1 January 2021. As there was no allocation of grants in 2020, the 2021 fund will include the Community Fund monies for 2020 and 2021. Applications can be made from not-for-profit groups and organisations based in the following Community Council areas:
- Catterline, Kinneff & Dunnottar
The energy company, Quintas Energy, has established a community fund which will see £12,950 (index-linked) available to support local community projects every year during the lifetime of the St John’s Hill 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 January 2021 to 31 March 2021. The Decision-Making Panel, along with a representative from Kincardineshire Development Partnership (KDP), will then meet to consider applications.
